Robert Jeffress says Trump doesn't have 'messiah complex'

Robert Jeffress says Trump doesn't have 'messiah complex'

Shmuel Rosner, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Jewish People Policy Institute in Israel, said he expected Netanyahu to keep a low profile because the relationship with Trump is too valuable.

The President also doubled down on his recent statement that Jewish-Americans who vote for Democrats show "great disloyalty" because of the party's defense of Representatives Tlaib and Omar. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI, who have made numerous anti-Israel comments in the short time they've been in office. "They call him their president in Israel because of his great support for Israel".

Earlier this week, Mr Trump claimed Jewish people who vote for Democrats are "very disloyal" to Israel.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday tweeted a fawning quote from a conservative, non-Jewish radio host who described Trump because the "King of Israel", and mentioned, with out proof, that Israeli Jews "love him like he is the second coming of God".

Jewish leaders expressed concern that Trump was levelling a charge against American Jews of "dual loyalty" to the United States and Israel, a classic antisemitic stereotype. Trump wasn't specific about the loyalty Jewish Democrats were violating.

American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris said he was "appalled" by Trump's comments about Jewish voters.

Trump supporters in Israel and the USA will probably leap from their seats with cries that Trump can not possibly be anti-Semitic as he has Jewish grandchildren, he is an Israel supporter, he has done business with Jews all his life and a lot of his assistants are Jewish.

World Israel News reported that Root was likely referring to that fact that polls show U.S. Jews overwhelmingly oppose Trump despite the president's track record of supporting Israel, including moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, cutting aid to the Palestinian Authority, and tightening sanctions on Iran, which has threatened Israel repeatedly with annihilation. But Reschenthaler has not made a public statement on Trump's comments.

"Remember, this country of Israel is no bigger than the state of New Jersey, and yet for three thousand years they've been attacked from every side from countries and ideologies like Nazism and radical Islam that want to wipe Israel off the face of the earth", Jeffress said.

The president's comments come one day after he had a lengthy phone call with NRA chief Wayne LaPierre. I cannot understand how they can do that. In presidential races, the Jewish vote since 2000 has ranged from 69 percent to 79 percent for Democrats, with Hillary Clinton getting 71 percent against Trump in the 2016 race.

President Trump has also raised eyebrows by reportedly assuring the National Rifle Association that universal background checks are off the table in gun control talks with the opposition, by suggesting Russian Federation should be allowed back into the G7 and trailing plans to detain migrant children indefinitely as concerns about the economy linger.

In Trump's mind, Shalev observes, Jews who vote against his party must be "ungrateful", given all that he has done for Israel.

Zeldin defended the president saying that there's always been an issue with using the terms "loyalty" or "disloyalty", adding that he wouldn't use those terms in context the president used them.

"I don't know if he's read the Bible, but in the Old Testament, that's not what we believe".

In his remarks on August 20, Trump said there will be no changes to foreign aid for Israel in response to Omar's suggestion.

I wish it were true, because Trump's real test is how his actions affect the American Jewish population.
