In a recent statement, former President Donald Trump expressed his belief that American Jews who choose to vote for Democrats hold a negative view towards their religion and Israel.

During an interview on Seb Gorka’s America First radio program, President Trump was questioned about the growing criticism that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is receiving from Democrats in the United States.

“I actually think they hate Israel,” Trump replied. “And the Democrat party hates Israel.” Trump said.

In a recent development, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who holds the distinction of being the highest-ranking Jewish elected official in U.S. history, has made a call for Israel to conduct fresh elections in order to undermine Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who is a conservative.

In the current climate, President Joe Biden is under increasing pressure to reconsider U.S. support for Israel unless there is a shift in the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

In a shift of focus, the ex-president turned his attention to the Iran nuclear agreement during the Obama era, a deal that was abandoned by Trump upon assuming office. He criticized Jewish voters in the U.S. who support Democrats.

“I really believe they hate Israel and they also see a lot of votes still. Don’t forget, when you see those Palestinian marches, even I– I’m amazed at how many people are in those marches. And guys like Schumer see that and to him, it’s votes. I think it’s votes more than anything else because he was always pro-Israel. He’s very anti-Israel now.” Trump remarked.

“Any Jewish person that votes for Democrats hates their religion. They hate everything about Israel and they should be ashamed of themselves because Israel would be destroyed. You have Iran now making a nuclear weapon. None of that would have happened with me. That’s a big thing.” he continued.
