On Wednesday's edition of 'New Day' on CNN, former Jeb Bush strategist Ana Navarro that there was a "correlation" between President Trump's attacks on the media and incidents of anti-semitism, saying: "I think his attacks on the media are feeding into these anti-semitic feelings."
In a panel about the president's recent statements denouncing racism and anti-semitism, Navarro said: "It took so much for him to read those words yesterday. It is like squeezing blood out of a stone."
"There's so much to be said from presidential leadership -- We're not going to get it from him on this issue. He hasn't been full throated," she also said about him.
"He appealed to some of those people in his base," she said about racists. "And he doesn't want to mess with that support from the anti-semites that did support them. He wants to keep that support."
"We all remember at his rallies, people shouting 'Jew S. A.,Jew S. A.,' and looking at the media. I think one thing has to do with each other. I think there is a correlation between his attacks on the media and a lot of this anti-semitic feeling," she said.
President Trump denounced anti-semitism and racism during a visit to the new Smithsonian black history museum on Tuesday. "You don't know where it's coming from, but I hope they catch the people," the president said. "I think you maybe have had it for longer than people think, and maybe it gets brought up a little bit more, but Anti-Semitism is horrible, and it's gonna stop and it has to stop."
