Our message to Trump: the feeling’s mutual

March 22, 2024

Once again, Donald Trump is targeting Jewish Democrats with his antisemitic vitriol. He thinks that Jewish Democrats like us should be “ashamed” of ourselves because we refuse to support his dangerous policies and fascist rhetoric, which threaten our democracy and freedoms. Pew Research Center finds that 79% of Jewish voters have an unfavorable view of Donald Trump, among the highest of any religious group. It’s incumbent on all of us to ensure we reelect President Biden and prevent Donald Trump from ever again setting foot in the White House.

JDCA will not be intimidated by Donald Trump. We “schooled Trump” by telling him “the feeling is mutual” on CNN and pointing out that his bigotry and hate is nothing new. The New York Times quoted us saying, “Another day, another depraved antisemitic screed from Donald Trump, who has repeatedly vilified the overwhelming majority of American Jews.” Watch our full response on CNN and support our work fighting back against Trump’s attacks and electing Democrats like President Joe Biden. 

Donald Trump’s extremist MAGA movement is coming after our reproductive rights. Just this week, Trump signaled his support for a national 15-week abortion ban. Also this week, we hosted a virtual conversation on abortion access, IVF, and the 2024 election with Senator Tammy Baldwin, President of EMILYs List Jessica Mackler, and Senior Advisor for Reproductive Rights for the Biden-Harris Campaign Morgan Mohr. We discussed the actions President Biden and Vice President Harris have taken to defend abortion access and protect reproductive rights amid dangerous and growing Republican attacks. Watch and share the recording.

Our next virtual event is on Wednesday, April 10, at 12:00 p.m. ET. We’ll be discussing immigration policy and the 2024 election with Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Lanae Erickson, Senior Vice President for Social Policy, Education & Politics at Third Way. Register now for this important event.
