Welcome to the week of "Is Donald Trump an anti-Semite?"
Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition forum in Washington, Trump was booed when he declined to state whether he believed Jerusalem was the "undivided capital" of Israel. His speech also contained a few interesting quotes. He begins by saying: "You just like me because my daughter happens to be Jewish."
"The only bad news, I can't get her on Saturday!"
Next, "Is there anyone in this room who doesn't renegotiate deals? Probably 99% of you. Probably more than any room I've ever spoken in."
And then: "I'm a negotiator, like you folks."

And finally: "Stupidly, you want to give money... But you're not going to support me because I don't want your money." “You want to control your own politicians,” he added.
He was also booed during an answer about Israel needing to make sacrifices in order to have peace with Palestine.

Trump to Jews: You're all a bunch of hagglers and you won't support me because I don't want your money.— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) December 3, 2015
Amazing that Trump can live in New York for so many years and still not know how to talk to Jews. https://t.co/wwWm57Lf2x— Evan Bauman (@evan_bauman) December 3, 2015
