Trump blasts ‘anti-Jewish’ Democratic party, brands House resolution ‘disgraceful’

Trump later said her comments were "terrible" and amounted to "a dark day for Israel" before adding that Jewish groups were trying to get her withdrawn from the Foreign Relations Committee.

The resolution condemned the charge of dual loyalty against Jewish Americans, stating it "constitutes anti-Semitism because it suggests that Jewish citizens can not be patriotic Americans and trusted neighbors, when Jews have loyally served our Nation every day".

Trump had earlier told reporters that a recent US House of Representatives vote condemning bigotry, which had originally been meant to condemn anti-Semitism but became a broader anti-hate measure, "was disgraceful".

The Orthodox Union welcomed the measure but said "it would have been better for the House of Representatives to respond to recent incidents of anti-Semitism with a resolution exclusively addressing that topic".

The HBO star had an apparent change of mind after House Democrats struggled to condemn Omar in a resolution that was broadened to include multiple forms of hate.

The original resolution focused more on denouncing anti-Semitism but morphed into a resolution condemning various other forms of bigotry against minorities in the U.S.

"It became an issue for the Democrats of "we can't censure this person because it's a woman and a person of color" and that I think is identity politics, is it not?"

Newly installed House Democrat Ilhan Omar recently made a racist, anti-Semitic statement about Jews in general and Israel in particular which raised the hackles of all thinking Americans, and places in question not only the quality of people the Democrats allow in their party, but also the wisdom of the people voting for such fools and putting them in office.

The action had come after controversial comments by Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. The Anti-Defamation League said it was "pleased the House of Representatives took a firm stance against anti-Semitism, including making an explicit statement rejecting the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and other vile slurs that have been used to persecute Jews for centuries".

"Let's be honest, we are here today because of rhetoric said by one member or this chamber, again and again and again", said Rep.

"Because Trump has a 50-year history of not just comments but of policies that are out-and-out racist. I apparently am giving Rep. Omar more credit than the speaker is because I don't believe she is naive". "You want to control your own politician".
