Adam Schiff: Trump Presidency Will "Cement" Relationship Between Democrats And Jewish Community


On CNN's "State Of The Union" on Sunday, Rep. Adam Schiff responded to comments from President Trump about the Democratic Party being an "anti-Jewish" party. Trump spoke to a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition on Saturday.

"I hate to even dignify those remarks, but look, it’s not the Democratic Party that believes that there are good people on both sides of a Nazi rally. There’s just one party and one party leader who believes that, and that’s Donald Trump," Schiff said.

"If there’s anything that is likely to cement the relationship between the Democratic Party and the Jewish community, it’s the presidency of Donald Trump. The lack of character and values that are certainly inconsistent with Jewish values, I think, are only consolidating support in the Jewish community and I think the president needs to look inward when it comes to the rise of anti-Semitism in the country and his own actions and his own words and how that may fuel some of the rise in hate that we see."
