Jewish Dems Respond to Trump’s Appointment of Nazi-tied Gorka

July 14, 2020

In response to President Trump’s appointment of Sebastian Gorka, Halie Soifer, Executive Director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, released the following statement:

WASHINGTON – “President Trump’s appointment of Sebastian Gorka, a right-wing extremist affiliated with an anti-Semitic Nazi Party, is yet another sign that Trump accepts, legitimizes and emboldens hate. Sebastian Gorka, who proudly displayed Nazi medals at Trump’s inauguration and has a ‘sworn affiliation’ with the Hungarian Vitézi Rend Party, has no place in the U.S. government, let alone the White House.

“In the past few weeks, Trump has amplified calls for ‘white power’, advertised on Facebook using Nazi images, and sold campaign shirts with the Nazi Eagle. Now, Trump is bringing a medal-donning Nazi-sympathizer back to the White House, where he’ll be in good company alongside the team driving Trump’s vile ‘four more years of hate’ re-election campaign.”
