American Jewish Orgs To Trump: Netanyahu Is Not 'Our' Prime Minister

American Jewish Orgs To Trump: Netanyahu Is Not 'Our' Prime Minister

According to AP Votecast, a survey of more than 115,000 midterm voters and 3,500 Jewish voters nationwide, voters who identified as Jewish broke for Democrats over Republicans by a wide margin, 72% to 26%, in 2018.

But her standing with President Donald Trump was shaky from the outset, and Trump began blaming her when illegal migration rebounded at the southern border.

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "racist" while speaking about the US-Israel relationship at a campaign event in Iowa on Sunday. "The incredible bond between the U.S. and Israel has never been stronger than it is right now".

On Sunday, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki responded to that pledge and accused the USA of encouraging Netanyahu. At their March 25 meeting, Trump signed a proclamation officially granting US recognition of the Golan as Israeli territory, a dramatic departure from decades of USA policy.

Moving away from Israeli issues, Trump called the asylum program "a scam". "She doesn't like Israel". "We don't love the fact that he's carrying the flag of Honduras or Guatemala or El Salvador, only to say he's petrified to be in his country".

In addition to using the word "your" to describe his association of Jewish Republicans with the Israeli state, Trump also described members of the organization as "Israelites" multiple times during his speech.

Downing Street officials have reportedly been in closed discussions with their counterparts at the White House since a year ago on the subject of a further visit by President Trump, with both parties expected to make an announcement in the next few days.

The latest polls place Netanyahu and ex-military chief Gantz neck and neck, but give the former the advantage.

Where is the Final Four?
It was all Virginia from there thanks to junior guard Kyle Guy, who led the team with 25 points and 10 rebounds. He said the loss made him look at every aspect of his program, not the core beliefs, but some of the methods.

"I would like to see peace in the Middle East", Trump said. "Two good people", he said, referring to Netanyahu and his rival Benny Gantz. "Unlike other presidents, I keep my promises", he said. "Well, you guys didn't", Trump joked to the Republican.

Las Vegas casino magnate and major Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, who is on the RJC's board of directors, was seated in the front row for Trump's speech.

In an interview, Mr Bolton said: "President Trump remains very eager to cut a bilateral trade deal with an independent Britain. Let's go, so we can win everything".

Trump noted it had always been a priority for Adelson and his wife, Miriam.

Despite his criticism of Democrats, Trump has faced his own criticism from the Jewish community. Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat tweeted, "Israel will continue to brazenly violate global law as long as the worldwide community will continue to reward Israel with impunity, particularly with the Trump Administration's support and endorsement of Israel's violation of the national and human rights of the Palestinian people".

Trump's speech comes weeks after he suggested Democrats "hate" Jews.

The House passed a resolution in March that initially condemned statements Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar made, but it was subsequently "watered down" to condemn hatred in all forms.
