In response to reports that President Trump invited Ben Garrison to a White House social media summit after he created an antisemitic cartoon, Democratic Majority for Israel President and CEO Mark Mellman issued the following statement:

“By inviting a cartoonist to the White House whose work the Anti-Defamation League calls ‘blatantly anti-Semitic,’ President Trump is, again, fanning the flames of hatred. At a time when antisemitic incidents are increasing at an alarming rate, President Trump should withdraw his invitation to this purveyor of anti-Jewish hate and condemn all forms of bigotry.”
