Donald Trump is the ‘worst perpetrator of purveying anti-Semitism,’ Wasserman Schultz says

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz condemned President Donald Trump on Monday for his weekend claim at a Mar-a-Lago political gathering that Democratshate Jewish people.”

Wasserman Schultz said it is Trump who has “repeatedly and intentionally” trafficked in anti-Semitic tropes, both as a candidate and since becoming president.

“He is the worst perpetrator of purveying anti-Semitism,” she said in an interview. “The president continues to use dog whistles and train whistles to perpetuate anti-Semitism.”

Wasserman Schultz continued: “He is a hypocrite. He has perpetuated anti-Semitism himself, and now what he is doing is even worse. He is, instead of trying to use the platform that he has to heal the situation, and calm the waters and bring people together, he’s dangerously weaponizing anti-Semitism as a political bludgeon, and that jeopardizes Jewish lives.”
