President Donald Trump criticized Democrats after the House passed an anti-hate resolution on Thursday, accusing them of becoming an “anti-Jewish party.”
The resolution, that originally condemned anti-Semitism, was drawn up in response to comments and tweets from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
“I thought yesterday’s vote by the house was disgraceful because it has become, the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. I thought that vote was a disgrace. If you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party and anti-Jewish party,” Trump said.
After voting for the resolution, Omar released a statement with Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) and Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN).
“Today is historic on many fronts. It’s the first time we have voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history. Anti-Muslim crimes have increased 99% from 2014-2016 and are still on the rise,” they said. “We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy.”
