David Friedman, the American ambassador to Israel appointed by President Donald Trump, got torn to shreds on Thursday after he issued a statement saying that the United States government supports Israel’s decision to ban two American lawmakers from entering their country.

“The United States supports and respects the decision of the Government of Israel to deny entry to the Tlaib/Omar Delegation,” Friedman wrote.

The ambassador went on to cite the congresswomen’s support for the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions campaign, which is designed to punish the Israeli government for its continued occupation of the West Bank, as justification for not allowing them in.

Friedman’s statement immediately drew harsh criticism, including from J-Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami, who slammed the ambassador for not “defending the rights of Americans.”

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was ripped during an Oval Office press availability Friday by President Donald Trump. The president, who never served in the military, mocked Vindman's rank, belittling him with sarcasm as “the lieutenant colonel."

“My client has seen war, and has sacrificed greatly for our country. He has said nothing publicly but for statements made pursuant to a subpoena. He deserves better than to be mocked, taunted, and bullied by the Commander-in-Chief,” the lawyer said according to CNN's Kaitlan Collins.
