Trump Answers Question About Rise in Anti-Semitism by Citing Size of Electoral College Victory

In today’s joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald Trump was asked about the sharp rise in anti-Semitism and what he would say to Jewish communities around the world who believe his administration is guilty of playing with xenophobia and racism.

Trump immediately took that opportunity to bring up one of his favorite subjects — the size of his Electoral College victory.

“Well, I just want to say that we are, you know, very honored by the victory that we had,” Trump said. “306 Electoral College votes. We were not supposed to crack 220. You know that, right?”

After talking more about his victory and how it was indicative of the enthusiasm out there for him, Trump pointed out that he has Jewish family members.

He ended his answer by saying “a lot of good things are happening” and that “you’re going to see a lot of love.”
