Dan Shapiro, the U.S. ambassador to Israel under Obama, noted this week during a briefing organized by the Jewish Democratic Council of America that Trump was ignoring the voices of Democrats like Rose and Luria, and trying to draw the attention only to Omar and Tlaib.

“It’s a total mischaracterization of the Democratic Party’s positions on Israel,” Shapiro said, adding that Trump conflates “the views of maybe 1 percent of the Democratic members of Congress with those of 99 percent of them.”
