Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, said: “Jewish voters overwhelmingly oppose [US President] Donald Trump and will vote against him in November, regardless of who is the Democratic nominee for president.”

Candidates should be judged on their positions, “not on whether they attend any particular conference,” she said in a statement on Monday. “JDCA will support the Democratic nominee, whoever that may be, in November and strongly opposes the use of Israel as a political wedge issue.”
