Trump Blames "Liberal Jews" for America and Israel's Destruction on Rosh Hashanah, Sparking Widespread Condemnation
Former President Donald Trump created controversy during Rosh Hashanah, the start of the Jewish High Holy days and the celebration of the New Year, by blaming "liberal Jews" for destroying America and Israel. Trump's message, posted on Truth Social, accused the majority of American Jews of voting to "destroy America and Israel" due to false narratives. The post received strong criticism from various quarters, with CNN anchor Dana Bash calling it "incredibly dangerous." Jewish groups condemned Trump's attack on "liberal Jews," and many expressed concern about the normalization of such rhetoric. Trump has frequently targeted Jewish Americans for not supporting him and has previously implored them to "get their act together before it's too late." This recent post by Trump reinforces antisemitic tropes regarding dual loyalty and conspiracy theories. The divisive nature of Trump's statement and its timing during a significant religious holiday have sparked widespread condemnation.
