As reported by my colleague and good friend Sister Toldjah here, President Trump is calling out Democrat fakery whenever he finds it. In his latest, he called out Rashida Tlaib’s crocodile tears over not being allowed to go see her grandmother, a request the Israelis had already granted. What followed was epic Donald Trump as he used this opportunity to make inroads in yet another Democrat stronghold, Jewish Americans who vote Blue 71% compared to 25% Red since 1968.
NBC News Twitter feed at 3:05 EST Tuesday had some interesting commentary by President Trump regarding that Jewish American support for Democrats. Pointing out the hostility displayed towards Israel by by Democrat House Members, Omar and Tlaib, the President called out the Democrat Party for defending them and their open and notorious hostility towards Jews and the State of Israel.
“I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat – I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge, or great disloyalty.”

President Trump is correct. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib both have a long history of hostile comments regarding the state of Israel. They are both vocal supporters of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement against the Israeli state. They also manage to ignore Hamas criminal activity against women and children while bad mouthing Israeli Rules Of Engagement,” rules that are much stricter than those currently in use by American Forces.
The President makes a very strong case that the Democrat Party has gone off the rails and has slipped so far to the left that it actively supports people who are hostile towards America and it’s allies. Trump is making a steady case that the Democrat priorities are anything but hard working Americans. Instead they are more concerned about illegal aliens who take jobs from American workers and take seats in college classrooms from American students.
This tweet is President Trump’s “What have you got to lose?” moment with American Jews. He’s asking quite pointedly, “Why do you support a party that traditionally has been hostile to your people?” “Why do you support a party that deliberately refuses to sanction one of its members for anti-Semitic comments?” Some of those Jewish Americans who have steadily voted Blue, are going to ask themselves that same question. They will be flipping the lever for President Trump in 2020.
President Trump is doing something that Republicans should have done long ago…fight for minority votes instead of writing them off. He fought for the Black vote in 2016. He got some of it. A few took him up on his “What have you got to lose?” and gave him a shot. Based on how well the economy is doing and his rising poll numbers among both Blacks and Hispanics, both of those groups who voted for him in 2016, will be back in 2020…and they’ll be bringing along some friends.
President Trump has now moved on to a new target. He is going after the Jewish American vote, like that of the Black and Hispanic communities, one long deemed by the Democrats as theirs. Buckle up. 2020 is gonna be an E-Ticket ride.
