Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s Jewish engagement director Aaron Keyak urged Jewish People to “stick together to do everything we can defeat Trump in November” in a press release Wednesday in response to a Washington Publish article which alleged that Trump stated Jews “are only in it for themselves” and “stick together.”
President Trump speaks on the telephone with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar from the White Home on … [+] June 27, 2017.
Trump made the feedback after a name final week with Jewish lawmakers, based on the Washington Publish story, which relied on nameless sources the paper described as “current and former U.S. officials.”
Keyak slammed the alleged feedback in a press release to The Hill saying, “This should serve as a wake-up call to the relatively few Jewish Americans who still insist on standing with and promoting the current occupant of the White House,” including, “Our community must stick together to do everything we can defeat Trump in November.”
Keyak stated Trump’s “use of anti-Semitic tropes has emboldened all those who hate Jews,” he stated, noting that Jewish People “must not numb ourselves to Trump’s dangerous rhetoric.”
Trump reportedly stated through the name with Jewish leaders that he noticed a ballot which confirmed he received 25% of the Jewish vote and was “amazed that it seems to be almost automatically a Democrat vote,” though he identified that his daughter Ivanka Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner and their kids are Jewish.
“We really appreciate you, we love your country also and thank you very much,” Trump stated, based on CNN, his use of “your country” was just like earlier remarks he is made that have been criticized for the suggestion that American Jews are disloyal to him and constant to Israel.
In response to the Biden marketing campaign’s criticism over Trump’s reported anti-Semitic feedback about Jews, a spokesperson for Trump’s marketing campaign stated the president is the “greatest ally to the State of Israel.”
The Washington Publish story included Trump’s alleged remarks in opposition to a number of races and ethnic teams, together with saying that Black People have themselves responsible of their battle for equality. White Home deputy spokesperson Sarah Matthews disputed the characterizations in a press release to the Publish. “Donald Trump’s record as a private citizen and as a president has been one of fighting for including and advocating for the equal treatment of all,” Matthews stated. “Anyone who suggests otherwise is only seeking to sow division.”
