President Trump said the United States’ relationship with Israel is at its highest point in history.
Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas today Saturday, the president touted the historic action his administration has taken to recognize Israel, and strengthen its place in the world.
These moves include last month’s recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and last year’s opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.
President Trump also pointed out republicans have not allowed anti-Semitism to take root in their party, compared to recent comments by some Democrats.
“And now the Democrats have allowed the terrible scourge of antisemitism to take root in their party and in this country,” said President Trump.
The president’s comments were referring to anti-Semitic tropes made by Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar.
Democrats have been accused of failing to condemn her actions, and instead allow her to sit on the powerful foreign affairs committee.
