Trump’s megachurch pastor goes off on Jewish Democrats: ‘I will curse those who curse you’

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump accused Jews who vote for Democrats of being disloyal to Israel. The president’s comments conjured the anti-Semitic trope of Jewish dual loyalty. Ironically, the president has claimed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is an anti-Semite.

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress is one of Trump’s closest spiritual advisors. The pastor doubled down on the president’s comments in an appearance on Fox News radio show, Patheos reports.

“And the question he (Trump) is raising about how can American Jews support Democrats who support people like [Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib], despicable representatives of our country who are antisemitic to the core, how can Jewish Americans support that?” he said.

“It makes no sense for those Jewish Americans not to support a president and a party that stands for Israel like Donald J. Trump does…” he added.

Jeffress also slammed Bernie Sanders for pushing back on Trump’s comments. “I am a proud Jewish person, and I have no concerns about voting Democratic,” Sanders said. “And in fact, I intend to vote for a Jewish man to become the next president of the United States.”

“… I mean it’s obvious Bernie Sanders is completely illiterate when it comes to what the Old Testament teaches about Israel,” Jeffress said.

For context, Jeffress quoted the part of the Old Testament about multi-generational curses.

“You know, God said to Abraham in Genesis 12, “I will bless those who bless you and your descendants and I will curse those who curse you and your descendants,” he said.

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
