The author of the explosive tell-all book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House sat down with MSNBC’s Katy Tur this morning and shared yet another disturbing tidbit about President Trump and his views on Jewish Americans.
It appears that like many of his advisors, the President is leery of Jewish people. “I think he’s aware of who is Jewish in a way that might give … that feels creepy” said Wolff.
While Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are Jewish, the presence of Jewish anti-Semite Steven Miller in the White House is proof that personal relationships with Jewish people and personally embracing anti-Semitic white supremacy are not mutually exclusive.
Trump has made his position quite clear with his actions and words, both in the White House and out of it. “
When Jewish community centers around the nation were hit with a slew of bomb threats and Jewish graveyards were vandalized, the White House not only refused to condemn the attacks, the president shouted down a Jewish reporter and then proclaimed he was the “least anti-Semitic person ever.”
When the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect criticized him over his failure to properly address the issue, Trump sent out Sean Spicer to tell Director Goldstein that he should be “praising” Trump for his “leadership.”
It’s clear that his close relationship with Israel and his decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is the result of the neocons and far-right Zionist and Christian extremists that populate his cabinet rather than any specific support for the nation of Israel.
With this newest revelation from Wolff, it’s a fair question if there are any groups besides straight white rich men that Donald Trump isn’t prejudiced against.
