Jewish Democratic Council of America Executive Director Halie Soifer tweeted in response that the RJC ad won’t work: “Since Trump has been in office, Jewish support for the GOP has been halved [because] Trump doesn’t share our values and Jews know the real shanda is in the White House.” She also shared a March 2016 article by the RJC’s chairman, former senator Norm Coleman, who wrote at the time he would “never vote for Donald Trump” and described the future president as a bigot and a fraud.

Soifer has noted that polls showed a decrease in Jewish support for the Republican Party in the 2018 midterms and a rise in support for the Democratic Party, with Democratic candidates receiving close to 80 percent of Jewish American votes.
