In a failed attempt to shame Jews who support the Democratic Party and vote for Democratic candidates, Trump said American Jewish people show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” After spewing his latest bigoted, anti-Semitic trop, Trump quickly criticism.
His latest outburst appeared directed towards his ongoing battle and hate for Reps. Omar and Tlaib, two Muslim Congresswomen who were recently denied entry into the State of Israel at Trump’s suggestion.
“Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they are defending these two people over the state of Israel?” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”
On that note: According to AP VoteCast, “a survey of the 2018 electorate, 72% of Jewish voters supported Democratic House candidates in 2018. Similarly, 74% said they disapprove of how Trump is handling his job.” So much for “Jexodus.”
Another shake your head moment: Trump has walked back his support for background checks, which most of us knew he would.
Following the mass shootings in Gilroy, CA, El Paso Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump hinted that we need to seriously address and look more closely at background checks. Things changed today and Trump did a major flip-flop at the expense of everyone in this country’s safety and more than likely, at the urging of the NRA.
It doesn’t look like the US will try to muscle in on Greenland any time soon. Trump postponed his trip to Denmark since Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s basically told him to pound sand.
We might see a few more dollars in our paychecks that could buy a loaf of bread or a trip through a drive-thru. Trump’s doing everything he possibly can to stave off a recession that his Tariff War helped create.
“Trump tried to tout the economy’s strength while also spelling out a number of steps he might push for that are usually reserved for periods of significant economic weakness. In addition to tax-cut ideas that Trump said are under review, he continued Tuesday to push the Federal Reserve to slash interest rates.“
