Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday tried to clean up President Donald Trump’s declaration that “any Jewish people” who vote for Democrats have “a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

Writing on Twitter, Giuliani explained that Trump wasn’t saying Jewish Democrats were disloyal to America — rather, he was saying they were being disloyal to Israel.

“Really disappointed a rep of ADL would feign confusion about [Trump’s] statement,” Giuliani said. “POTUS is referring to disloyalty to Israel.”

Accusing Jews of having “dual loyalty” to both the United States and Israel is an anti-Semitic slur that has been used to paint American Jews as foreign agents in their own country. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) drew heavy criticism earlier this year when she said that members of Congress were so in lockstep in support for the Israeli government that it was akin to having “allegiance to a foreign country.”

Omar, however, never explicitly said that it was American Jews who had “allegiance to a foreign country” — and now Giuliani is flat-out stating that American Jews should have dual loyalties to both America and Israel.

And given that the Democrats usually win between 70 percent to 80 percent of the Jewish vote in elections, Giuliani seems to be telling the majority of American Jews that they are failing their dual loyalty test.

Because of all this, Giuliani’s tweet was met with furious replies — check out some reactions below.
