Jewish Groups Dismayed by Trump's Response to Anti-Semitism Question

Jewish Groups Dismayed by Trump's Response to Anti-Semitism Question”

Donald Trump today flipped out on a Jewish reporter for asking a good question about the uptick in reported anti-Semitic attacks - including bomb threats - since Trump was elected.

Towards the end of his press conference today, Donald Trump took a question from Jake Turx, a Hasidic Jewish reporter for a small US-based weekly magazine that caters to the worldwide Orthodox Jewish community.

Although Trump can't seem to overcome freakish charges of anti-Semitism, it was President Barack Obama who endangered our country's valuable alliance with Israel.

Trump, expressing indignation, replied: "See he said he was going to ask a very simple question and it's not". Number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person you have seen in your entire life.

Adele , while accepting "Album of the Year" award at Grammys 2017, expressed her gratitude and love for her contemporary Beyonce. At last year's show, the British singer had a hiccup after a microphone inside a piano fell onto the instrument's strings.

"See, he lied about - he was going to get up and ask a very straight, simple question", Trump said.

Because, you know, all black people know each other.

A similar question had been posed to Trump in a joint press conference with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on Wednesday, to which he responded, "We are going to do everything we can to stop racism".

"There is no greater supporter of Israel or the Jewish State than President Donald Trump".

'No, ' he said, answering his own question. "We are going to do everything within our power to stop long-simmering racism and every other thing that's going on, because a lot of bad things have taken place over a long period of time".

Trump has been called out for stacking his cabinet with men questionable histories on tolerance, notably former Breitbart boss Steve Bannon.

The Anti-Defamation League has monitored a spike of racist and anti-Semitic graffiti and vandalism since Trump's election, including the use of Nazi imagery. "And you know it's something that was very important to me", Trump continued. If you somehow think they love you and use your name and likeness and many of your sayings as a form of bigotry all because you are "the least anti-Semitic" and "least racist" person they know, then you are either dumb, a liar, or a combination of both - which is my best guess. This is highly regretful and I'm going to seek clarification, ' Turx said. "It makes me very hopeful that he will work together with the community".

After the press conference, the CBC wrote on Twitter that they have already reached out to Trump, but had not yet heard a response. It requires no talent, planning, or effort; all Trump needed to do was say, "I condemn anti-Semitism and all anti-Semitic hate crimes". "And I'm with him when it comes to being outraged about him being charged with this anti-Semitism". He went on to reference the fact that he has "so many friends" who are Jewish, and added cryptically that "you're going to see a lot of love" under his administration.
