Democrats would 'leave Israel out there', Trump tells Jewish voters

Hernández said the asking price to hop across the southern US border has been further "influenced" by the closings of previous entry points that immigration officials have enforced - one of the many key elements that are a part of the Trump administration's ongoing battle against illegal migration.

He also accused Democrats of allowing anti-Semitism to "take root" in their party.

"I think it's going to be close". Oh, no she doesn't like Israel, does she.

Trump has looked to display U.S. support for Israel in general, and for Netanyahu in particular, in various other ways, including moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in 2018 - "I took an historic action", Trump said Saturday - and pulling out of the nuclear agreement his predecessor Barack Obama negotiated with Iran.

'The logic of migration, in the last 10 years, has been transformed a lot, ' Hernández said.

Trump referred to Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as "your prime minister" and railed against what he characterized as an anti-Israel agenda by Democrats in Congress.

"The Golan Heights is something I've been hearing about for a long time", Trump said at the Republican Jewish Coalition's annual meeting.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen leaving administration
At the Department of Homeland Security, Nielsen replaced Kelly, who left the department to take over as Trump's chief of staff . US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is the latest staffer to quit under the Trump administration .

Despite his criticism of Democrats, Trump has faced his own criticism from the Jewish community.

"Over the years, Israel has been blessed to have many friends to sat in the Oval Office", Netanyahu told Trump during a visit to the White House last month. He and his campaign have, on numerous occasions, promoted anti-Semitic memes, including an image of Hillary Clinton with a Jewish star and a pile of money.

Trump met privately with Adelson before speaking, according to an official.

Trump then adopted a deep voice, saying, "I am very fearful for my life, I am very anxious that I will be accosted if I'm sent back home" to impersonate a hypothetical migrant. Adelson has cancer and has been in poor health, but he and his wife attended Trump's remarks - receiving a standing ovation when they entered the ballroom.

In 2016, Jewish voters went for Hillary Clinton over Trump by 71 percent to 24 percent, according to records from the Jewish Virtual Library, a project of the American-Israel Cooperative Enterprise. A major funder of the RJC and the Israeli-American Council is Sheldon Adelson; the RJC annual event takes place at Adelson's Venetian casino resort.

Nielsen was selected for the job by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly in 2017, at a moment when the former Marine Corps general was at a peak of influence within the Trump Administration.

Weil, who wore a blue Trump-style hat that read, "Making Israel & America Great Again", says he's a Republican because of the party's strong stance on Israel.
