"In my opinion, you vote for a Democrat, you're being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel", Trump said.

"If you vote for a Democrat, you're being disloyal to Jewish people, and you're being very disloyal to Israel", Trump said Wednesday as he left the White House for Louisville, Kentucky. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI, who have made numerous anti-Israel comments in the short time they've been in office. The attention given to Omar and Tlaib has raised their profile at a time when Israel wants to isolate them within the Democratic Party.

Meanwhile, President Trump has stirred controversy this week by questioning Jewish Americans who vote Democratic even as some of the party's leading voices oppose Israel.

"I am a proud Jewish person and I have no concerns about voting Democratic", Sen.

"It reminds me of what people have said about Catholics and Democrats", she said Tuesday after Trump's remarks in the Oval Office. They love him like he is the second coming of God.But American Jews don't know him or like him.

The president also took to Twitter to thank Wayne Allyn Root, a conservative radio host often criticized for promoting conspiracy theories, for saying that Jewish people in Israel love Trump "like he's the King of Israel" and "like he is the second coming of God".

"And despite what Ilhan Omar says, and the air quotes she uses when she says it, Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle-East", she explained. Some of the groups accused the president of weaponizing anti-Semitism for political gain.

Mr Trump said revamping the countries' trade relationship should have been done "a long time ago by a lot of other presidents". "We got to wake up to this war, or we're going to die in our sleep as a country, and that's what's happening right now". Furthermore, they must do so not, as they are commanded in the Bible, by loving God with all their hearts and all their souls and all their might, but rather by clinging with the same intensity to certain now fashionable conceptions of what constitutes progress and how to define justice - even if these conceptions are highly questionable, and even if, as most blatantly in the case of Israel, obedience to them could be tantamount to committing suicide. "It's outrageous, it's unsafe, and I don't know who can get him to understand".

Rosner said Netanyahu will likely try to assure Democrats that he values their support and reach out to American Jews, even though he said many Israeli leaders quietly believe that support from the Jewish American community is not what it should be.

Yes, the guy who literally said "drones can save lives" in the same sentence as "protect schools" is a perfectly fine source to tap on Jewish American relations.
