Trump just told the Pennsylvania AG that anti-Semitic threats may be false flag operations

Published

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro came away baffled after President Donald Trump told him in a meeting that some of the anti-Semitic threats to Jewish Community Centers might be false flag operations.

As reported by BuzzFeed’s Chris Geidner, the president told Shapiro that while he was horrified by reports of threats against Jewish institutions, he also said that “sometimes it’s the reverse,” where the threat was made simply “to make others look bad.”

Reporter Anna Orso notes that, during his chat with reporters, “Shapiro stopped short of saying Trump thinks his supporters are being framed for bomb threats,” although the Pennsylvania attorney general “seems to think that’s what he meant.”

As reported by Geidner, Shaprio said that Trump’s statement “didn’t make sense,” and said he hoped the president would clarify during his address before Congress on Tuesday evening.

Trump’s suggestion that anti-Semitic threats might be being made by people who want to make “others look bad” comes shortly after longtime adviser Anthony Scaramucci hinted that it was actually Democrats who may be responsible for the threats against the JCCs.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit

Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.

Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."

While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
