Trump says ‘U.S. Jews have to get their act together,’ returning to antisemitic trope

Donald Trump, a former president, criticized America. He criticized the Jewish community on Sunday for not supporting Israel enough.
“U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel — before it is too late!” he declared on his social media website, Truth Social.
Trump bragged about his support for Israel while in power and claimed that American Jews don’t properly recognize his contributions to the nation. He proclaimed, “No President has done more for Israel than I have. Surprisingly, though, Jews, especially those who reside in the United States, are significantly less appreciative of this than our lovely Evangelicals.
In the present day, this tenet of antisemitism has changed to asserting that Jews have an allegiance to Israel. For millennia, antisemites have maintained that Jews can have “dual loyalty” with their religious religion.
When he claimed that American Jews who support Democrats were shown “tremendous disloyalty” to Israel in 2019, then-President Trump attracted fierce criticism. He also declared at the White House, “If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very unfaithful to Jewish people and very unfriendly to Israel.”
“It’s unclear who @POTUS is claiming Jews would be ‘disloyal’ to,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, said on Twitter at the time, “but charges of disloyalty have long been used to attack Jews.” He added: “It’s long overdue to stop using Jews as a political football.”

The White House on Monday sharply condemned former President Donald Trump’s ominous warning to American Jews, which he made in a social media post the day before.

Trump was again accused of antisemitism in 2020 after addressing American Jewish leaders and referring to Israel as “your nation.” At a gathering with American Jews in 2019, he addressed the Israeli prime minister as “your prime minister.”
Trump also asserted that he may become the nation’s next elected official in a post he made on Truth Social on Sunday.
“Those living in Israel, though, are a different story” from American Jews, he wrote. “Highest approval rating in the World, could easily be P.M.!”
