Trump says Jews won't vote for him because they can't control him with their money



Donald Trump, speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), repeatedly said that Jews won't vote for him because, since he wasn't accepting donations, they would not be able to control him with their money.

“You are not going to support me even though you know I am the best thing that could happen for Israel. I know why you are not going to support me. You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money,” Trump told a full auditorium of Jewish donors and Republican Jewish supporters. “You want to control your own politicians.”

This plays into anti-semitic claims that Jews control the country with their money. Has he said this to any other group? Has he told evangelicals that they won't vote for him because they can't control him with their donations? No. Only the Jews.

It is totally bizarre that he would say something so offensive to Jewish voters. Furthermore, why would he ever tell any group of voters that they are not going to vote for him? If that's true, why did he even speak to them? It's a defeatist attitude.

I don't believe, on the basis of this alone, that Donald Trump is an anti-semite, but these statements put his judgement into question.

Furthermore, he displayed stunning ignorance of what is going on in Israel. He said that once he is president he is optimistic that with his deal making skills he can bring peace between the Israelis and Palestinians in six months, or perhaps less, if both are "committted" to peace.

Really? Is Trump unaware of the many, many efforts before him? Is he unaware that the Palestinians were offered nearly all the West Bank and turned it down? Is he unaware that the Palestinians still have not accepted the right of Israel even to exist? How can peace be made under those circumstances?

Trump would not even agree that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish people. He says he hasn't yet decided and wants to meet with Israel's prime minister before he takes a position on this. Is this really such a controversial issue that he has no opinion on? If he's not willing to back Israel on such a fundamental issue, can he really be said to be such a good ally of the Jewish state?

People are focusing on Ben Carson's wooden performance before the RJC and the fact that he doesn't know how to say the word "Hamas". But Trump also showed ignorance and questionable judgment in his appearance before the group.

Can Cruz close the welfare spigot hard enough to make illegals self-deport?


Self-deportation was the mantra of the Mitt Romney campaign. At the time, it was seen as a kinder and gentler alternative to forcibly deporting illegal aliens, because even Republicans became afraid of being supportive of enforcing our immigration laws, for fear of being viewed as cruel or heartless by the liberal media.

If you were wealthy and your first child was just born, what would be the first thing you would do? Give away all your money so your child would get almost nothing, right? Well, that's the decent parental instincts of Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, who penned an open letter to his newly born daughter telling her that she would never, ever see 99% of the 45 Facebook billion dollars he had made. His daughter Max, who was given a boy's name perhaps in the hope of encouraging transgenderism down the line, will surely appreciate his noble gesture.
