Friend or Felon?

June 4, 2024

On November 5, Americans will elect either President Joe Biden or twice-impeached, 34-time convicted felon Donald Trump. The choice facing American voters is binary and has never been more clear.

Last Friday, President Biden once again demonstrated his commitment to ensuring Israel’s security now and in the future. Thanks to President Biden’s leadership and diplomacy, there is a deal on the table to bring all the hostages home, and the onus is now on Hamas to accept this deal. As President Biden said, “now it’s time to raise your voices and demand that Hamas come to the table and agree to this deal and end this war that they began.” We appreciate President Biden’s leadership and stand with him.

We need you to get involved in electing Democrats like Joe Biden. Join us starting today to phone bank for Democrats who share our values.

The only alternative to Joe Biden is Donald Trump, who again resorted to antisemitic attacks immediately after he was found guilty of 34 felonies. We cannot allow this twice-impeached, convicted felon to be elected president, because when it comes to supporting Jewish Americans and defending Israel, Donald Trump acts without conviction, morals, or regard for our security. He is only concerned with himself.

Jewish voters have a clear choice this election: friend or felon? President Biden is a friend to Israel and Jewish Americans. Donald Trump is a convicted felon who is friends only with Donald Trump. President Biden stands by our values. Donald Trump is an affront to our values. President Biden’s support for Israel is genuine, unprecedented, and lifelong. Donald Trump’s support for Israel is – according to his former national security advisor – conditioned on “what’s good for Donald Trump.”

This is an easy choice. We stand with our friend, not the felon. Join us.

President Biden is not the only Democrat running for office who stands by our values. Join us starting today, Tuesday, June 4, at 5:30 p.m. ET to phone bank for Westchester County Executive George Latimer who is running for Congress in NY-16 against Rep. Jamaal Bowman.
