Trump Demolished Online Over Self-Glorifying Tweet In Response To Anti-Semitic Stabbing Attack In New York
On Saturday, a masked man forced his entry into a New York rabbi’s home and stabbed five Hasidic Jews with a machete before he was driven outside by others. On Sunday afternoon, President Donald Trump finally condemned the attack and somehow made it all about himself.
In a pair of tweets, Trump condemned the attack and then patted himself on the back by claiming that a “respected Jewish leader” had said “wonderful” things about him.
“Thank you to highly respected Jewish leader Dov Hikind for his wonderful statements about me this morning on Fox And Friends,” Trump tweeted.
The comments triggered an avalanche of negative responses. Take a look at the thread below:
The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific. We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.

In which Trump praises disgraced far right Jewish leader Dov Hikind who made his name wearing Black face, stealing from his campaign money to travel the world, and helping his friends bomb Americans as Kahanist terrorists who assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

Dang, everything is about you, isn't it? No one is allowed to speak the truth about you without being personally attacked! You are in reality a very heartless person that only thinks of himself and what next for you! I literally can't stand the sight of you!#TheResistance
