President Donald Trump doubled down Wednesday on his controversial assertion that Jewish Americans who vote for a Democrat are "very, very disloyal to Israel and the Jewish people", continuing his effort to make support for Israel a political wedge issue ahead of the 2020 election.

"A rapidly growing number of American Jews support conditioning, cutting, or ending USA military aid to a country that uses our tax dollars to violently oppress Palestinians", said Miller.

"In my opinion, if you vote for a Democrat you're being very disloyal to Jewish people and you're being very disloyal to Israel".

And she adds, to quote Mehr as Warren's own words were not quoted on this point, "she had consistently supported a strong US-Israel relationship and US aid to Israel, and believed that Israel had a right to defend itself from Hamas and hostile states like Iran".

Donald Trump apparently thinks even more highly of himself than we thought.

Trump - who had earlier approvingly retweeted a description of himself as the King of Israel - said his predecessors had allowed the United States to be taken advantage of on trade and intellectual property and it had befallen him to undo the damage. Former Vice President Joe Biden said Trump's remark was "inexcusable" and "beneath the office" of the president, while Sen. He cited members of the 'squad, ' and two freshmen Democrats who didn't go to Israel after being barred by the Israeli government. "The charge of disloyalty or dual loyalty has been used against Jews for centuries".

Historically, Jews have overwhelmingly voted for Democratic candidates. "He has grossly miscalculated if he thinks he can terrorize the American Jewish voter base into supporting him", Rabbi Alissa Wise, deputy director of Jewish Voice for Peace, said in a statement emailed to Newsweek. "We're winning", he said.

Ron Klein, the chair of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, also slammed Trump in a Wednesday interview with CNN, accusing the president of "weaponizing anti-Semitism".

"Let me say this to the president", Sanderstweeted.

Despite what Trump has said, the majority of American Jews (52 percent) identify as Democrats, with just 16 percent identifying as Republicans, according to a recent Gallup poll.
