President Donald Trump criticized House Democrats for failing to strongly condemn antisemitic statements in their party.
“It is shameful that House Democrats won’t take a stronger stand against Anti-Semitism in their conference,” Trump wrote. “Anti-Semitism has fueled atrocities throughout history and it’s inconceivable they will not act to condemn it!”
House - Democrats - House - Speaker - Nancy
House Democrats revolted against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to pass a resolution to condemn antisemitism after freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar accused American supporters of Israel as having an “allegiance to a foreign country.”
The House resolution is now expected to condemn all hate, not single out antisemitism.
Controversy - Candidates
The controversy inspired 2020 presidential candidates to speak out.
Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren defended Omar in a statement, claiming that criticism of Israel should not be considered antisemitic.
