In a post on his Truth Social platform that is drawing accusations of antisemitism, former President Donald Trump on Sunday attacked American Jews for insufficiently supporting him.
“Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel – Before it is too late!” he wrote.
The comment taps into the antisemitic “dual loyalty” trope that American Jews are more loyal to Israel and Jewish people than to the United States.
Trump’s comments were met with swift rebukes from Jewish advocacy groups and Democrats.
The White House spokesperson condemned Trump’s comments at a briefing on Monday, calling his rhetoric “antisemitic” and “insulting both to Jews and to our Israeli allies.”
