    Trump on Gun Control and American Jews

    More insight on Trump's latest "thoughts" on gun control and American Jews. Video shows in link.

    President Trump spoke extensively with reporters outside the White House Wednesday, answering questions on gun policy, Russia, the economy and even birthright citizenship.

    Yamiche Alcindor, who was there in person, joins William Brangham to discuss key takeaways, including Trumpís alignment with the NRA on gun background checks and his criticism of American Jews who support Democrats.

    I would say that despite being a liberal from New York he was probably reminded that a good chunk of the republican base are avid 2nd amendment supporters and wouldn't stand for any left wing anti-2nd amendment trash gun control proposals.

    As for criticizing jews who vote democrat. How is this any different than when leftists criticize blacks who vote republican. Heck its usually worse when leftists criticize blacks because they call them uncle toms and other racial slurs. I remember some months back liberals got a kick out of calling Dr. Carson an Oreo just because there was a picture of him with some Oreos or some other irrelevant stuff they thought gave them a legitimate excuse to call a black man a Oreo.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The difference is that the liberals you're talking about are random people you encounter on internet forums, and this is the President of the United States. You may not have higher standards for the President than that for Internet forums, but most Americans do.

    Stop your excuses and just admit Trump shouldn't have said it as it was obviously extremely condescending against Jews. Your idiotic false equivalency is not equivalent. If you want more non-white voters tell the GOP to stop pandering only to white people while insulting everyone else as being "On the Democratic plantation" and other ****ty comments.

    You do understand the difference between a country and its government, and the faith of its population? There are many, many Jews hostile to the actions and policies of a far-right state, as well they should be given their history.

    Except a good chunk of the public wants change, including the republicans.

    The party of extinction is the party of blame the other and allow mass school shootings.

    I hope you enjoy supporting a party that continues to allow US children to be massacred nearly daily.

    Incorrect. When it comes to "democrats" like Pelosi and Schumer, you're outright wrong. When it comes to folks like me, sorry, I do not support states that put children in cages, bomb civilians, illegally occupy ancestral lands, etc.

    The republicants are filled with a death cult, nihilistic obsession with Israel thanks to the primary threat to american democracy, the evangelical right. They think that allowing Israel to maintain power there fulfills the christian destiny and will bring about the apocalypse.

    Sorry, I do not negotiate with hostile entities.

    Yes, it does. It fulfills the destiny of the end time mythology. If you claim to be a christian and think I am lying, I will challenge that you are in fact not a christian. If you aren't a christian, you are not educated on the mythology and dogma of christianity, and thus should not make such uninformed commentary.

    Jews should fear more government, not less. Fearing the modern right wing makes no sense for anyone, especially the jews.
