Trump doubled down on Wednesday, telling reporters, "In my opinion, you vote for a Democrat, you're being very disloyal to Jewish people and you're being very disloyal to Israel, and only weak people would say anything other than that".
Tlaib and Omar-both of whom have been criticized for pushing an anti-Semitic narrative-were denied entry from visiting Israel last week. "They call him their president in Israel because of his great support for Israel".
The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) continued its defense of Trump on Wednesday, saying that in portraying the Democratic Party as an adversary of Israel, the president had merely been "pointing out the obvious".
Jeffress said Trump's remark "was right on target" before pondering a question posed by Starnes about how anyone who is a Christian could vote for Democrats.

Delhi court reserves order on CBIs plea for Chidambarams custody

President Donald Trump may have had a record day, he alienated another North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally and America's Jewish Community at about the same time.
And since most Jews didn't vote for him last time, nor will they next year, the hysteria about his "disloyalty" comments - which were aimed as a wake-up call to an electoral sector that wants to stay asleep - will have little effect, other than to make it more hard for American-Jewish Trump supporters to chat at water coolers, attend cocktail parties or sit down to family meals without being ridiculed ruthlessly.
There is a profound distinction between the president (however sloppily) accusing some Jews of "disloyalty" for failing to sufficiently support the most pro-Jewish administration in the history of the republic, on the one hand, and Jew-hating BDS supporters invoking millennia-old "dual loyalty" canards, on the other hand. Some in the news media think Trump's "God-complex" grandiose comments are the result of his ego-battering exchange with the Prime Minister of Denmark - after he reiterated his claim that he wanted to buy Greenland. Instead, these "king" metaphors allow them to make a different argument: God chooses "imperfect" men to be "vessels" for his will because they have talents - in Trump's case, belligerence and bullying, interpreted as "strength" - that matter more than their sinful behavior.
The growing influence of Islam is behind an increasingly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party, a Republican congressman contends. Not a normal thing that people usually say unless they are Superman or Harry Potter, or like, a complete narcissist, but sure. President Trump is taking heavy criticism for that remark, after again calling Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and her colleague "enemies of the Jewish State". But American Jews don't know him or like him. "It is unconscionable that the U.S. President stokes such unsafe division".
"You are looking good, Woody", Mr. Trump said.
I wish it were true, because Trump's real test is how his actions affect the American Jewish population.
