Democrats are patting themselves on the back for passing an anti-hate resolution but it was a complete joke. The only reason they were forced to pass it was to deflect from the fact that one of their own, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, can’t go a week without saying something hateful about Israel and the Jewish people.
Trump pointed out the truth. This is what the Democrats have become.
Business Insider reports:
Trump says Democrats have ‘become an anti-Israel party, an anti-Jewish party’ after the latest fight over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments
President Donald Trump slammed the House of Representatives’ passing a resolution condemning “all forms of hate” in the wake of infighting within the Democratic caucus over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s controversial statements on Israel, which were widely denounced as anti-Semitic.
“I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful because it’s become — the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party,” Trump told reporters shortly before boarding Air Force One on Friday morning.
“They’ve become an anti-Jewish party. And I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer,” he continued.

Ilhan Omar is going to be an ongoing headache for Democrats. It’s not just Israel she hates.
Seth Barron writes at the New York Post:
Forget about Israel: Ilhan Omar’s not a big fan of America, either
Since she entered Congress earlier this year, freshman Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar has consistently made news with her anti-Semitism, which may yet force the Democratic Party into a corner. Less noticed — and apparently even less troubling to her party—is the hostility Omar shows in public statements about her adopted country.
Omar was born in Somalia, which she fled with her family at age 9, during the country’s civil war. She spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya until the United States rescued her and her family in 1995. It’s not surprising that she has made her remarkable experience a centerpiece of her political campaigns and public life.
What is surprising is the extent to which her narrative consists of complaints about the intolerance, racism, inequity, and filth that she found when she came to the United States, and since.
Gratitude, for the country and the people who saved and welcomed her family, is largely absent from her telling.
How did this woman even get elected?
