Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib sharply criticized Israel on Monday for denying them entry to the country and called on fellow members of Congress to visit while they can not.

President Donald Trump retweeted a post on Wednesday from conservative author and radio host Wayne Allyn Root that American Jews "don't even know what they're doing or saying anymore". Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley.

Asked whether Tlaib planned to meet with Israeli officials or Knesset members, a spokesman for the Palestinian-American lawmaker did not respond.

"I have nothing to do with it", Trump said, "but I don't blame them for doing what they did".

"Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time", Trump said. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders said he was "a proud Jewish person.[with] no concerns about voting Democrat".

Trump also claimed that Tlaib and Omar, whose visas to enter Israel were denied of hating Jewish people and their country.

She declined, saying her grandmother had ultimately urged her not to come under what they considered to be humiliating circumstances.

NBA Rookie Survey 2019 Features Multiple Atlanta Hawks
The No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Zion Williamson, received 35% of the vote to be the 2019-20 NBA Kia Rookie of the Year . It is the main reason why rookie Williamson got the biggest shoe deal in the entire National Basketball Association history.

The Jewish Democratic Council of America, an organization representing progressive Jewish Americans, said Trump's remarks are "dangerous" and "textbook anti-Semitism".

The remark led critics to argue the President was dabbling in the anti-Semitic trope of "dual loyalty", which questions the loyalty of Jewish citizens. Trump had encouraged Israel not to let them into the country, a move that was ultimately criticized in Washington by Democrats and Republicans alike. A number of groups noted that accusations of disloyalty have always been made against Jews, including in Europe during the 1930s. And Jewish Americans are far more likely to call themselves Democrats than Republicans.

The Republican president drew outrage on Tuesday from Democratic presidential candidates and Jewish groups after accusing American Jews who vote for Democrats of "great disloyalty".

Donald Trump sparked fury on Tuesday when he said Jewish voters were disloyal if they voted Democrat. "The @GOP, when rarely confronted w/anti-Semitism of elected members always acts swiftly and decisively to punish and remove". Both also support the right of Americans to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, a peaceful global protest against Israel that seeks to replicate the success of the anti-apartheid movement against white South African rule.

Polls found that 76-79 percent of Jews voted for Democrats in November's midterm elections, mirroring a long history of backing the party.

Pew Research found that 79% of U.S. Jews in 2018 voted Democrat for the House of Representatives. Similarly, 74% said they disapprove of how Trump is handling his job.

"In the eyes of many if not most U.S. Jews, Trump has now evolved from a suspect accused of anti-Semitism into a felon convicted beyond any reasonable doubt", Shalev wrote.
