Netanyahu plays race card: Israel is 'Jewish nation'

Rabbi Steven Wernick CEO of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism

President Donald Trump is facing harsh criticism from American Jewish groups and individuals after he told a Republican Jewish group that Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu was "your prime minister".

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world.

"Who says that we won't do it?"

Several of the Trump administration's actions toward Israel have been praised by that country's leaders, including moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and a recent decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

After Omar apologized for her words, Trump, during a Cabinet meeting in the White House, said, "I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee", per reporting from CNN.

Miguel Andujar placed on 10-day injured list with shoulder injury
Rookie right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga will be called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Wednesday against the Tigers. NY said before the game that Stanton strained his left biceps Sunday and Andujar injured his right shoulder.

The US president on Saturday was cautious about the outcome of Israel's upcoming election, calling it a close race between "two good people".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Trump last month. "And that relationship, if it is to be successful, must transcend partisanship in the United States, and it must be able to transcend a Prime Minister who is racist".

President Donald Trump seemed to refer to a crowd of Jewish Republicans as Israelis multiple times within a speech Saturday.

But Netanyahu trailed his main challenger, Benny Gantz, a former army chief of staff, in final polls of the campaign published Friday.

Trump made the same mistake last week, when he said his father was born in Germany, confusing his father with his grandfather, while it was his grandfather, Friedrich Trump who was born in Germany. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and three White House officials, including adviser Jared Kushner, made trips to the Venetian Saturday in Las Vegas, where RJC members were gathered for the third day of their annual spring conference.

Jason Momoa grows emotional as he reflects on 'nearly losing' Emilia Clarke
Kristofer Hivju, who played the role of Tormund Giantsbane, pointed to the show's unpredictability as part of its strength. It also has one of the most dynamic battle scenes ever filmed in an episode called, "Battle of the Bastards".

He also gave a shout-out to billionaire mogul and Republican donor Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam, who were sitting in the audience, saying, "They love Israel".

He also said that Kevin McAleenan, the US Customs and Border Protection commissioner, will replace her.

Trump also took credit for eliminating hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinians and for pulling the USA out of several U.N. organizations, the U.N. Human Rights Council and UNESCO, citing anti-Israel bias in their agendas.

Trump's speech comes weeks after he suggested Democrats "hate" Jews. He and his wife, Miriam, received a standing ovation when they entered the ballroom where Trump was set to speak. They followed that by contributing $100 million to the Republican Party for the 2018 midterm elections. And if Netanyahu wins reelection to his fourth consecutive term on Tuesday, and with Trump's blessing, goes forward with annexing the West Bank settlements, the two-state solution will nearly certainly be dead for good.

President Trump on Saturday criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar, one day after a NY man was arrested and charged with threatening to kill the Minnesota Democrat.
