Donald Trump calls Democrats 'an anti-Jewish' party

US House Democrats Struggling over Rebuke to Lawmaker for Israel Comments

More importantly, the American Jewish community maintains loyalty to the United States while aiding Israel, which is a vital American ally.

Watch: Trump calls on Rep.

On Thursday, the US House passed a resolution originally meant to deliver a direct rebuke of anti-Semitism following comments by Omar.

"His comments show the president is only interested in playing the politics of division and not in fighting anti-Semitism", Schumer wrote in response Friday afternoon.

Zeldin was one of just 23 Republicans to vote against the resolution, which Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) called a "sham" and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) called a "deceitful way to give Omar cover".

Fresh from a bruising fight over comments by her criticized as anti-Semitic, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar jumped back into the frying pan over the weekend, appearing to level harsh criticism at former U.S. president Barack Obama, then claiming she had been misquoted before seemingly backtracking. Andre Carson, D-Ind., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., calling the vote "historic on many fronts" for denouncing "all forms of bigotry".

She continued: "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress". To head off a political firestorm that threatened to derail the Democratic agenda, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed to vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism.

The authorities, on the other side, said the power cuts were caused by "sabotage" of country's biggest hydroelectric power plant. The agency says the blackout stems from an attack on the Guri power plant and that officials are working to restore service.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi defended Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar during a sitdown with The Economic Club in Washington, D.C., on Friday, telling those in attendance that she believed Omar "didn't realize" the "fraught" meaning of her words when the freshman representative questioned USA political support for Israel.

Thursday was the second time the U.S. House voted to condemn anti-Semitism as a rebuke of Omar, although she is not named in either resolution.

She sure knows everybody's beliefs and intentions all the time, whether they go with what the person says or not, isn't she? "I think this is a sign of hope that more popular involvement in the party could.challenge the traditional elites of the party".

Pelosi said the broadening of the resolution didn't weaken it in her appearance with The Economic Club.

lIhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments, President Donald Trump told reporters Friday the Democrats have become an "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish" party.

"Mr. President, you have redefined chutzpah", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who like Trump is from NY.

When host Chuck Todd asked Cheney if President Donald Trump has done enough to combat all forms of hate and anti-Semitism, she shrugged off a straight answer, saying she didn't "believe this is right or left" and "I think this is an issue where all of us should come together".
