President Donald Trump told reporters that the Democrats’ vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism was “disgraceful because the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They have become an anti-Jewish party.” The resolution was a response to recent comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar that were widely criticized as anti-Semitic, though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the vote was "not about her" but "about these forms of hatred."
"I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful because it's become--the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They've become an anti-Jewish party and I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer. If you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They've become an anti-Jewish party and that's too bad," Trump said.
Trump also said his former lawyer Michael Cohen told “a stone-cold lie” when he said he did not seek a pardon. Cohen told a Congressional committee he has never asked for a pardon from Trump.
The president made the remarks before leaving for Alabama to tour the damage from a deadly tornado that killed 23 people.
