Donald Trump says Democrats are 'anti-Israel', 'anti-Jewish'

Donald Trump says Democrats are 'anti-Israel', 'anti-Jewish'”

Cheney was one of 23 lawmakers, all Republicans, who opposed the resolution, which condemned anti-Semitism and discrimination against Muslims in equal measure and overwhelmingly passed the House on Thursday.

Pocan joined Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib on February 27 during the Washington, D.C., confab that triggered the congressional resolution reviling all kinds of prejudice big and small.

"I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer", said the President as he left the White House. Last week, Omar received bipartisan blowback for suggesting pro-Israel organizations pressure lawmakers into pledging allegiance to a foreign country.

The resolution was originally meant to deliver a direct rebuke of anti-Semitism following comments by a Muslim Democratic congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, that were deemed anti-Semitic and offensive by many colleagues.

Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown Won't Run For President
Brown had flirted with a possible presidential run in the months since he was re-elected to the Senate in November. Throughout the past couple of months, Sherrod Brown has campaigned in four early primary and caucus states.

Reacting to his comments on CNN, Daily Beast editor Jackie Kucinich ran through Trump's long history of bigotry, calling his condemnation of Omar "shameless".

The final vote on the resolution was 407 to 23, with 23 Republicans voting no, and all Democrats, including Omar, voting yes. Lee Zeldin similarly defended his vote against the resolution and criticized Democrats who wouldn't specifically condemn Omar. "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress".

Republicans generally joined in the favorable vote, though almost two-dozen opposed the measure, one calling it a "sham". But she said she also believes "there is a critical difference between criticism of policy or political leaders, and anti-Semitism". "I think we deserve it".

When asked why Omar wasn't named in the resolution, Pelosi said because "It's not about her".

She also tweeted in 2012 about "the evil doings of Israel" and how Israel had "hypnotized the world", again echoing ancient anti-Jewish tropes about dual loyalties and Jews buying political influence.

Antonio Brown Trade Could Happen Soon
Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler , the Steelers will not trade Brown within the AFC North, nor to the New England Patriots, if possible. The Pittsburgh Steelers will surely do everything in their power to commence a deal prior to that specific date.

Before the resolution was passed, Trump took to social media to blast "House Democrats" for failing to take a stronger stance against anti-Semitism. Others questioned whether a resolution was necessary at all and viewed it as unfairly singling out Omar at a time when Trump and others have made disparaging racial comments. Republicans who voted against it complained it had been watered down.

An initial draft of the resolution being circulated Monday did not name Omar specifically, but it did reject "the myth of dual loyalty", a reference that seemed to rebuke her most recent comments about Israel that have caused consternation among her colleagues.

"I don't think it watered down the anti-Semitic language at all, I think it strengthened it", Pelosi responded.

The original resolution focused more on denouncing anti-Semitism but morphed into a resolution condemning various other forms of bigotry against minorities in the U.S.
