Statement from Democratic Majority for Israel Co-Chair Ann Lewis and President and CEO Mark Mellman on President Trump’s Remarks on American Jews

WASHINGTON, DC (August 20, 2019) – In response to President Trump’s remarks on American Jews being disloyal if they vote for Democrats, Democratic Majority for Israel Co-Chair Ann Lewis and President and CEO Mark Mellman, issued the following statement:

Disloyalty? Donald Trump has now attacked three quarters of American Jews who dare to disagree with him politically using one of the most dangerous, deadly accusations Jews have faced over the years.  False charges of disloyalty over the centuries have led to Jews being murdered, jailed and tortured.

This kind of cruel rhetoric inflames antisemitic passions and can lead to violence.”
