The White House issued a statement condemning “vile and unhinged Antisemitic rhetoric” on Monday after former President Donald Trump said “any Jewish person that votes for Democrats hates their religion.”During an appearance on Seb Gorka’s America First podcast on Monday, Trump was asked about the growing criticism toward Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from leading Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). “I actually think they hate Israel,” replied Trump. “The Democrat party hates Israel.”The former president then added, “Any Jewish person that votes for Democrats hates their religion. Like President Biden said, he was moved to run for President when he saw Neo Nazis chanting ‘the same Antisemitic bile that was heard in Germany in the 1930s’ in Charlottesville. Bates concluded, “He will never give hate any safe harbor, including today.”Have a tip we should know?
