WASHINGTON – Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) called on the Republican Party to reject President Trump’s racist attack on members of Congress to “go back” to their birth countries. JDCA executive director Halie Soifer released the following statement:
“President Trump’s appalling diatribe this weekend was a blatant display of racism. His subsequent justification of his hateful rhetoric is a transparent attempt to politicize and use Israel as a diversion, which we strongly reject.
“Trump has once again exposed himself as America’s ‘Racist in Chief,’ and Republicans’ silence and outright embrace of his views demonstrates their complicity in his hateful agenda. We urge the GOP to reject Trump’s racism, hatred and bigotry as unacceptable, irrespective of the policy positions of those who are under attack.”
