'Jexodus' Encouragement From Trump to Jewish People, 'Republicans Are Waiting With Open Arms'

President Trump encouraged Jewish people to switch to the Republican Party, tweeting about a “Jexodus” from the Democrats.????In recent weeks the Democratic Party has faced criticism and divisions in the wake of freshman Representative Ilhan Omar’s remarks on the U.S.’s relationship with Israel, which were seen as anti-Semitic.

She has since apologized.????However, In light of this controversy and touting his support for moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, the President tweeted…????“The ‘Jexodus’ movement encourages Jewish people to leave the Democrat Party.

Total disrespect!

Republicans are waiting with open arms.”??

??“Jexodus” is not a Trump term but rather a group that is encouraging Jewish millennials to leave the Democratic Party, which is traditionally strongly supported by the Jewish people.????Democrats have also taken heat for watering down a House resolution originally aimed at condemning Omar’s comments but was broadened to include all hate…????...this led to some Republicans refusing to vote for it, saying it didn’t specifically target Omar’s controversial remarks.????President Trump quoted his former staffer Elizabeth Pipko in a tweet following her appearance on Fox News where the spokesperson for the “Jexodus” group said this…????SOT??“There’s anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party.

They can hide it, they can do whatever they want.

They failed to condemn it and now it’s there, so it’s time.”
