Today, Democratic Majority for Israel President and CEO Mark Mellman released the following statement:
“Just nine days after Kanye West dined with former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago, West appeared on the far-right outlet InfoWars where he declared, ‘I like Hitler.’ It’s unconscionable that West’s unhinged views – actual Nazi admiration — have so far been met with silence by our former president.
“If Donald Trump was the least bit serious about condemning antisemitism, he would not let these vile remarks go unchecked. His presidency and post-presidency have been filled with an odious game of footsy with antisemites, white nationalists, racists, and others who traffic in the cesspool of humanity. If there was any doubt before, it’s now clear that Donald Trump is not a friend of the Jewish people.
“As President Biden said today, ‘Silence is complicity.’”
