Donald Trump is the ‘worst perpetrator of purveying anti-Semitism,’ Wasserman Schultz says

Trump continues to show his lies and hate.

S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz condemned President Donald Trump on Monday for his weekend claim at a Mar-a-Lago political gathering that Democrats hate Jewish people.”

Wasserman Schultz said it is Trump who has “repeatedly and intentionally” trafficked in anti-Semitic tropes, both as a candidate and since becoming president.

“He is the worst perpetrator of purveying anti-Semitism,” she said in an interview. “The president continues to use dog whistles and train whistles to perpetuate anti-Semitism.”400x225


Wasserman Schultz continued: “He is a hypocrite. He has perpetuated anti-Semitism himself, and now what he is doing is even worse. He is, instead of trying to use the platform that he has to heal the situation, and calm the waters and bring people together, he’s dangerously weaponizing anti-Semitism as a political bludgeon, and that jeopardizes Jewish lives.”

The results of anti-Semitic words translating into action, she said, can be seen in the October 2018 massacre that killed 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue Pittsburgh.

Anti-Semitic comments by prominent political figures have erupted recently as a newly divisive issue. Trump and Republicans have seized on comments by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, in which she’s said American politicians’ support for Israel is motivated by money and accused Jewish people of having dual loyalties.

The political website Axios reported that several people attending a Republican Party event at the president’s private club in Palm Beach on Friday night said Trump referred to Omar and declared, “The Democrats hate Jewish people.”

Axios also reported that Trump said he “didn't understand how any Jew could vote for a Democrat these days,” talked about all he’s done for Israel, and said if he could run for prime minister of the Jewish state he’d be at 98 percent in the polls.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to answer questions Monday about whether the president believes Democrats hate Jews. She said the question should be posed to Democrats. “I am not going to comment on a potentially leaked audio.”

Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat who represents parts of Broward and Miami-Dade counties, is the first Jewish woman from Florida elected to Congress. She’s a former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee; she and Trump have been sharply critical of each other in the past.

On Monday, she said Trump has contributed to anti-Jewish sentiment. “I would argue that the fact that we have been engaged in a very dangerous and difficult environment to be a Jew in America today was caused by President Donald Trump himself.”

Wasserman Schultz pointed to several examples:

— As a candidate, Trump retweeted an image of Hillary Clinton with a backdrop of money and what looked to many like a Jewish Star of David, a suggesting “Jews were trying to control the election by buying it.”

— Also as a candidate, Trump suggested that Republican Jewish Coalition audience members were good at deal-making and money because they were Jewish.

— As president, after white supremacists rallying in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017, chanted “Jews will not replace us,” Trump said there were “fine people” on both sides.

Also on Monday, U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings issued a statement condemning Trump’s reported comments at Mar-a-Lago. “The president has again invoked racist and insulting tropes [and] politicized anti-Semitism,” he said.

DWS is lying. Not surprising I guess.

Your comment is surprising when there are so many examples of Trump's prejudicial comments over his life time.

It's documented in books, news print, magazines, audio and video.

You can disagree with opinions, claim that what writers recorded did not happen,

but calling someone a liar about her opinions about Trump is just plain ironic.

It's the flip side of TDS.

Oh noooooooooooo, Tacos.

When he told the Casino Manager to fire all of the the black accountants and money counters and to replace them with guys wearing yarmulkes every day,

he was only insulting the blacks because they are inherently lazy.

It was no way a slander at Jews.

Your proof that Trump is anti-Jew is a 35-year old unprovable bit of gossip that he thinks Jews make better accountants than blacks? At most, I'd say that makes him anti-black, not anti-Jew.

You know his daughter and son-in-law are Jewish, right?

His senior political advisor/speech writer, Stephen Miller is a jew. Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin is Jewish.  David Friedman, our ambassador to Israel is Jewish. Gary Cohn, Trump's first head of the National Economic Council is a Jew. 

I could go on. How can someone who hates Jews so much possibly seek to surround himself with so many? It makes no sense.

The problem with all of this BS is that you guys take a comment here or there (or even a rumor of a comment here or there) and declare Trump to be a nazi/white supremacist/guy who hates all non-white, non-Christian people. But it's so stupid because the man has total control over the people he associates with and he associates with all kinds of people. Ignoring those facts is just willfully dishonest and it's all done for politics, not for anything real.

Nobody pays attention to what Wattsername says. If she ever had credibility, she lost it long ago.

I think DWS should have to prove that Trump is anti-Jew. There's an awful lot of evidence to the contrary, starting with the people in his life that he loves, works with and hangs out with.

See how this turd of a 'president' always makes it about him:

Trump demands personal apology from New York Times after anti-semitic cartoon

Protestors gather outside the New York Times building over Netanyahu cartoon

Scroll back up to restore default view.

Donald Trump has suggested that the New York Times should really apologise to him personally, after the newspaper issued an apology for printing an anti-semitic cartoon in its international editions.

Mr Trump, a man who is known for his disparaging remarks of the media and the New York paper, said on Twitter that the news organisation’s coverage of him has been slanted and damaging.

“The New York Times has apologised for the terrible Anti-Semitic Cartoon, but they haven’t apologised to me for this or all of the Fake and Corrupt news they print on a daily basis. They have reached the lowest level of ‘journalism,’ and certainly a low point in @nytimes history!” he tweeted.

The tweet followed after the paper printed a cartoon depicting Mr Trump as a blind man wearing a skull cap, and being led by a dog version of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The cartoon stirred fury internationally, and the paper was forced to issue a rare apology for printing the image.

Mr Trump has fostered a tight working relationship with Mr Netanyahu since taking over the Oval Office just over two years ago, giving the Israeli leader several major victories that he has sought for years

That included pulling US involvement in the Iran nuclear agreement, and moving the US embassy to Israel into Jerusalem — a move that other presidents had notably refused.

That percentage depends on which poll one chooses to believe. It also depends on which Jews were polled.

And Hillary still lost. BTW ... we're now in the 2020 election cycle.

Doesn't take long here to pick up on that.

It results from not being able to intelligently discuss an issue.

Why don't you show us some figures, Greg Jones?  Just show us one.  You have made many comments to this forum, and I can't even recall one that contained facts and figures with a link. 

No sseded articles, no written articles. No links, no quotes, nothing but your opinion, usually directed at people who do post facts and figures. Perceptive people know what your game is, and there are 5 or 6 others just like you here. What a drag on this forum.

What's funny is the poster directly below your original post has posted so many anti Trump seeds, but has never been able to prove any of them true, and has the gall to criticize someone for at least not posting lying seeds.

They are familiar with it, just not told by their handlers what is about. Like Blaxit, they prefer to act as if it doesn't exist and continue to attack those that leave the plantation as "tokens".

Pew puts it at a bit over 79%. A couple of Jewish polls show the number between 75 an 80%.

Its not so funny watching the party that claims to be patriotic and pro-USA is now allowing Putin to call the shots.  Trump kisses Kim Jong Un ass, Putin ass, MBS ass, and those are all murderers.  Yet you say nothing but whine about a handshake.  Think about that.
