Donald Trump says Democrats are 'anti-Israel', 'anti-Jewish'

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".
Democrats boast the most gender- and ethnically diverse House in US history after November's election, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi found herself embroiled in the downside of what that diversity means. GOP lawmakers wanted the resolution to specifically focus on anti-Semitism and on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
"It is shameful that House Democrats won't take a stronger stand against anti-Semitism in their conference. The President's continued talk of blame "on many sides" ignores the abhorrent evil of white supremacism, and continues a disturbing pattern of complacency around acts of hate from this President, his Administration and his campaign for the presidency".
Some Democrats complain Omar's comments on Israel ignited this debate but Trump's racially charged rhetoric has led to no similar congressional action. Omar, a Somali refugee who resettled in Minnesota, had sparked fiery debate with her repeated criticisms of Israel and how a powerful pro-Israel lobby in Washington exerts influence on U.S. politicians.
"I don't think it watered down the ant-Semitic language at all", she said. "She might be. I don't know what her thoughts are on this". "That's wrong", Sanders said.
The resolution was prompted by comments from Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar, an American refugee of Somali background, after she said she was being pressured to pledge "allegiance" to Israel.
"We are appalled, but not surprised, that President Trump has once again demonstrated dishonesty, hypocrisy and willingness to use anti-Semitism and Israel as a political football", said its executive director, Halie Soifer, reported The Times of Israel.
He was referring to President Donald Trump's seeming inability a year earlier to explicitly condemn a white nationalist and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Va.
"The president's own words have fueled the fire of intolerance and targeting of Jews, and Republicans have failed to condemn the president's remarks in the same way that Democrats were quick to rebuke Representative Omar".
Zeldin was one of just 23 Republicans to vote against the resolution, which Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) called a "sham" and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) called a "deceitful way to give Omar cover".
