The Board members of Democratic Jewish Outreach Pennsylvania (DJOP) today said that former President Donald Trump’s latest attack on the Jewish community “demonstrates once again that he is delusional.”
“Anyone who lost an election by more than seven million votes, who thinks that he could be elected Prime Minister of Israel and whose rants encourage violence against religious and ethnic groups shows how dangerously disconnected he is from reality,” said Jill Zipin, Chair of DJOP, in a statement.
“Trump’s threat Sunday on his website that Jews should “get their act together…before it is too late” is reminiscent of what the world heard from Nazi Germany in the 1930’s,” Zipin said. “His failure to recognize that many Jewish voters have interests and concerns that are separate from their concerns for the State of Israel and his stereotyping of Jewish voters is nothing more than bigotry, and we will not bend to his antisemitic threats.”
