On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we remember the millions of precious souls who perished as a result of the horrific crimes perpetrated by the Nazi regime….https://t.co/drhi6UeJ14— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 27, 2020
The perpetrators of anti-Semitism and hate have been given a presidential megaphone through Trump’s refusal to condemn violent extremist groups.— Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg) January 26, 2020
As president, I will call these groups for what they are – domestic terrorists – and work with the FBI and DOJ to crack down on them. pic.twitter.com/3yvRHp9iR0
I support Israel. I always have & always will. But I refuse to use Israel as a wedge issue for electoral purposes — as Trump has.— Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg) January 26, 2020
Americans should never have to choose between supporting Israel & our values here at home. I will defend both — because they are inextricably linked. pic.twitter.com/Oebl6TMIn8
My parents taught me that Judaism is about more than going to shul — it’s about living our values to help others & to ‘repair the world’ in the tradition of Tikkun Olam.— Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg) January 26, 2020
That’s the spirit behind our campaign, and it’s why I’m excited to launch our new coalition #UnitedforMike. pic.twitter.com/3kJBPZfEXx
According to Michael Bloomberg, Donald Trump is forcing Jewish voters to choose between their foreign policy and domestic policy views while Bernie Sanders wants to transform America into a kibbutz. Trump threatens Jewish values. Sanders threatens Jewish money.
“WASHINGTON – Michael Bloomberg blasted President Donald Trump for his support of the far right and emphasized his unwavering support for Israel, at an event for Jewish supporters in Florida on Sunday, criticizing his fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders along the way.
Bloomberg attacked Trump for “trying to use Israel as a wedge issue for his own political purposes.” He called the 45th president’s use of Israel in American politics “a disgrace.” He added that “we must never let Israel be a football that American politicians kick around.”
“There are those who will cite the embassy move [to Jerusalem] as a reason to support President Trump,” Bloomberg said. “To that I say very clearly: If I am elected, you will never have to choose between supporting Israel and supporting our values here at home.” He said that, unlike Trump, “I will defend both.”
Meanwhile, Donald Trump spent the day commemorating the Holocaust and huddling with Bibi Netanyahu in preparation for tomorrow’s release of the Kushner Middle East Peace Plan.
