  • Trump: History Lesson Led to Golan Heights Decision

After Omar said that the United States support for Israel was motivated by donations from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, several House Democrats dubbed the comments as offensive and invoking anti-Semitic stereotypes.

"It's troubling", said Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America.

In remarks to a conservative Jewish group, Trump thanked several Republican lawmakers for their support before proceeding to mock Omar, an outspoken critic of USA policy toward Israel who has also made comments that some say invoke anti-Semitic stereotypes.

A USA judge blocked the Trump administration's policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the order won't immediately go into effect.

In the wake of the Christchurch terror attacks last month, that left 50 people dead, Ms Omar said Mr Trump's comments towards Muslims had inspired the attack.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

"We don't love the fact that he's got tattoos on his face, that's not a good sign", Trump said. Growing numbers of families are fleeing poverty and gang violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Trump mockingly thanked Omar as he began his speech, before adding, "Oh, I forgot".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH'-hoo) is seeking a fourth consecutive term in office as Israel's leader.

House chairman asks IRS for 6 years of Trump's tax returns
The move is part of an effort by Democrats to look into Trump's business dealings as well as possible conflicts of interest. Richard Neal (D-Mass.) wrote a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig , citing his authority pursuant to 26 U.S.

The latest polls place Netanyahu and ex-military chief Gantz neck and neck, but give the former the advantage.

"I stood with your prime minister at the White House to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights", Trump told the crowd.

This was the not the only comment in Trump's speech that seemingly conflated Jews and Israelis. "But no it's not, it's largely stolen", Trump said.

Trump, who was speaking to American Jews, went on to refer to Netanyahu as "your prime minister".

The president says "we need more Republicans".

"Politicians who seek to weaponize the US-Israel relationship and turn it into a wedge issue are no friends of Israel, and the transparent cynicism of their words are clear to all", said Drew Hammill, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a statement to CNN. "The Golan Heights is something I've been hearing about for a long time", Trump said at the Republican Jewish Coalition's annual meeting.

"Republicans are waiting with open arms", Trump tweeted on March 15. Should Trump be required to release them? Trump praised Adelson from the stage. Adelson, 85, has been battling non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and received a loud ovation when he appeared at the event and took a seat in the front row. They followed that by contributing $100 million to the Republican Party for the 2018 midterm elections.

Incredibly, Trump took time during his speech to deride Democrats, suggesting they didn't have Israel's interests at heart - doing so while again utilizing the dual loyalty anti-Semitic trope.
