White House Tells Reporter She Should Ask Democrats If They Hate Jews

Sarah Sanders spars with CNN’s Jim Acosta over anti-Semitism allegations

Sarah Sanders spars with CNN’s Jim Acosta over anti-Semitism allegations

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Monday repeatedly refused to say whether President Donald Trump really thinks Democrats "hate" Jewish people.

The White House celebrated the departure of its communications chief Bill Shine holding its first press briefing in 42 days. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party; they've become an anti-Jewish party, and that's too bad. Omar was not singled out by name.

Last year, Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a November 7 press conference. "The president has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people and the community of Israel". It shouldn't be put in a watered-down resolution.

"I thought yesterday's vote by the house was disgraceful", Trump said Friday, adding "the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party".

Later in the day, Trump told Republican National Committee donors that Democrats "hate" Jewish people, according to a person who heard the remarks but spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the president's comments at a private event. "It should be done the way the Republicans did it when Steve King made awful comments", Sanders said.

Lawmakers would then vote on Wednesday or Thursday on whether to postpone Brexit, which might be the only choice at that point. If her deal is rejected, there will be two more votes this week to give MPs the final say on ruling out a no-deal scenario.

Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that.

"That's a question you ought to ask Democrats", Sanders shot back.

In view of the ongoing scandal arising from the sweetheart deal Acosta gave pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and considering Acosta's unwillingness to implement a conservative agenda at DOL (or even to reverse the leftist Obama administration agenda), it's hard for me to see Acosta hanging on much longer. They're comfortable killing a baby after birth, but they have a hard time condemning the type of comments from Congresswoman Omar. "The incident that happened, I don't think our colleague is anti-Semitic", Pelosi said.

She praised Republicans for having called out Rep. Steve King and stripped him of committee memberships for his racist remarks. "If you stop talking, I'll finish my statement".

But while Sanders has denounced King's comments as "abhorrent", the president has not done so.
