President Trump also pointed out republicans have not allowed anti-Semitism to take root in their party, compared to recent comments by some Democrats. He warned members of the Republican Jewish Coalition Saturday in Las Vegas that a Democratic victory in 2020 could "leave Israel out there".

Trump also took credit for eliminating hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinians and for pulling the USA out of several U.N. organizations, the U.N. Human Rights Council and UNESCO, citing anti-Israel bias in their agendas.

On Sunday morning's edition of CNN's State of the Union, host Jake Tapper played a clip of Trump claiming that "the Democrats have even allowed the bad scourge of anti- Semitism to take root in their party and in their country", remarks he made at the Republican Jewish Coalition Convention in Las Vegas.

"Oh, I forgot. She doesn't like Israel", Trump said.

"Democrats are advancing the most extreme partisan agenda by far in American history. people aren't fighting for Israel in Congress", Trump said.

"Special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota", Trump told members of the Republican Jewish Coalition in a ballroom of the Venetian Resort. That's not a good sign. "We don't love the fact that he's carrying the flag of Honduras or Guatemala or El Salvador, only to say he's petrified to be in his country". Trump said, imitating them.

He also has a close relation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is seeking re-election Tuesday. But at one point, he told the crowd that he "stood with your prime minister at the White House".

BMW, Daimler, VW broke antitrust rules, EU says in ‘preliminary view’
Nicolai Laude, VW's litigation director, stressed that the EU's investigation was limited to conduct relating to emissions controls systems.

But he's facing major opposition from his former army chief of staff, Benny Gantz.

But privately, she had grown increasingly frustrated by what she saw as a lack of support from other departments and increased meddling by Trump aides, the people said. Trump has cited his moving of the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and his decision to pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal as reasons for Jewish voters to leave the Democratic party and support him and the GOP instead. "This is because Trump's policies and rhetoric are antithetical to Jewish values, and because anti-Semitism has increased to unprecedented levels due to Trump's divisive words, policies, and wilful blindness".

"I would like to see peace in the Middle East", Trump said.

"If there's anything that is likely to cement the relationship between the Democratic Party and the Jewish community, it's the presidency of Donald Trump". The group chanted, "Jews are here to say, the Occupation is a plague". "We need more Republicans".

"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said in the aftermath of the event, which included throngs of white nationalists changting things like "Jews will not replace us". He and his wife, Miriam, received a standing ovation when they entered the ballroom where Trump was set to speak. Trump praised Adelson from the stage.

Adelson's company revealed earlier this year that Adelson is receiving treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The Adelsons gave Trump's campaign US$30 million in 2016.
