Netanyahu Shut Down Suggestions That Trump Is An Anti-Semite

17 February 2017, 04:40 | Winifred Adams

At a joint White House press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, an Israeli reporter noted the recent spike in anti-Semitism in the US, and asked Trump what he had to say to Jews who see Trump's administration fanning xenophobia.

Turx asked his question respectfully and told Trump he did not blame him personally for hate crimes against Jews, but wanted to know about his plans.

President Trump called himself "the least anti-Semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life". In our investigation into hate crime in Germany, particularly hate crime associated with xenophobia, we found that the rhetoric of leaders matters a great deal.

Trump throughout his campaign faced accusations of, at the very least, failing to adequately quell anti-Semitism among some of his supporters.

More recently, Jewish community centers have become targets for anti-Semitic violence. OK, sit down. I understand the rest of your question. But Trump told him to be quiet and accused him of lying.

Trump did not say what he would do about preventing anti-Semitism in America.

"President Trump, you are President of the United States". "I want to find a friendly reporter", the president said at the one hour-and-18 minute mark, in possible open mockery of the forest of raised hands in front of him.

This is the decisive moment for the season and the second half of the season is the one which decides what will happen. Ibrahimovic's hat-trick was the 17th in his career and also took him to 17 career goals against the French club.

No matter that he made this statement while cutting off a question from Jake Turx, an Orthodox reporter for the Brooklyn-based Jewish magazine Ami, and no matter that the question Turx was asking had nothing to do with Trump's own beliefs.

"As far as Jewish people - so many friends, a daughter, a son-in-law and three attractive grandchildren - I think you're going to see a very different America in the next three, four years", he said, referring to his daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism before marrying Jared Kushner. Yesterday, during a press conference with vising Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump used a question about anti-Semitism as an opportunity to talk about his electoral college win, and little else.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and director of the Anti-Defamation League, condemned Mr Trump's inability to explain what he is going to do about anti-Semitism or to explicitly condemn it.

According to Turx, President Trump is bothered on a personal level that there is anti-antisemitism in the United States.

"Some of the signs you'll see are not put up by the people that love or live Donald Trump", the president added during the press conference, in comments carried by CNN. "In each of these actions I'm keeping my promises to the American people", Trump said.

Turx followed up on Twitter, saying the president "clearly misunderstood my question".

"When you're in a campaign, someone asks you a question you don't know the answer, you pivot".
