Trump Gets Instantly Blasted After Claiming Jewish People Who Don’t Support Him Are ‘Disloyal’
Donald Trump is the definition of hypocrisy. On Tuesday, after attacking Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, Trump called on all Jewish American people to support him because if they don’t they would be disloyal.
“Any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” Trump said.
Trump’s comments shocked many people. They decided to call him out on Twitter for it. Take a look at some of the responses below:
Clarifying my tweet: Trump made this "disloyalty" comment after blasting Omar as an antisemite. The Omar controversy came after she was accused of…suggesting American Jews have a dual loyalty to Israel. (Critics of the critics said her "allegiance" comment was misinterpreted.)

Per 2016 exit polls, voters who identified as Jewish broke 71-23 for Clinton.
In the 2018 midterms, it was 79-17 for Dems. https://t.co/BU31L1BLFb

Accusing Jews of disloyalty for not bowing to him is some literal Haman shit https://t.co/dWzo8UzJRc

Historically, accusing Jews of mass national disloyalty for supporting the wrong political party has worked out fine. Never been an issue. https://t.co/SKKJm5wYmX

Disloyalty to whom? Trump? America? Other Jews? Israel? It's a horrible thing for a president to say no matter how you slice it. https://t.co/hDndaKTELR

This is it, Trump’s antisemitic philosophy exposed.
If Jews don’t agree with him, they aren’t good Jews.
This is how he gets us killed. Sides with the “good ones” and spouts hate at the rest, coded or not.
Thus the Soros caravan conspiracy that led to the Pittsburgh massacre. https://t.co/5kAULiF1Xy

Trump just called 80% of American Jews disloyal. https://t.co/GIKZhwOuFV

I’m a Jewish American and I am anti-Trump.
“fine people on both sides” proved he doesn’t care about the Jewish people

The leading, but not the only, candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2020 just accused the vast majority of American Jews of disloyalty. Maybe the party should discuss this.

Hoo boy, a lot to unpack here.
The president of the United States is saying that the primary loyalty of American Jews should be to Israel,
He EXPLICITLY says that Jewish Democrat’s are “disloyal,” presumably to Israel, and the subtext is that “disloyalty” makes them bad Jews. https://t.co/qh6e5yy0qL

context on who Trump is accusing of ignorance and "disloyalty"
Gallup: "Jewish Americans were among the least likely to approve of Trump of all religious groups in 2018, with just 26% approving and 71% disapproving." https://t.co/p6os3zdpRp https://t.co/BAqTG8igHH

Trump: “Any Jewish people that vote Democrat are showing either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”
