On Saturday, Trump addressed an annual summit by the Israeli American Council in Hollywood, Florida.

Trump previously mentioned anti-Semitic tropes in a speech before a primarily Jewish audience in 2015, when he told the Republican Jewish Coalition that he's "a negotiator, like you folks".

"You have to vote for me".

Trump received an overwhelmingly positive reaction during his speech as he complained too many Jews "don't love Israel enough" and falsely accused Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of proposing a "wealth tax" he said would put Jewish people "out of business in about 15 minutes".

J Street, a Jewish non-profit advocacy group, said "The President of the United States is incapable of addressing Jewish audiences without dipping into the deep well of anti-Semitic tropes that shape his worldview".

Democrats expected to unveil two articles of impeachment
Trump was merely concerned about corruption in Ukraine and pointing out that the security assistance was eventually released . The White House in a statement called the formal charges "baseless" and said Trump will address them during the trial phase.

It just four months ago, for example, that Trump used some highly provocative rhetoric about Jews and what he expects about their "loyalties".

Soifer also revealed Jewish support for Republicans has been slashed by more than half since Trump became president.

Some nations "you never even heard of before" were calling him about moving the embassy, he added. "A lot of you are in the real estate business because I know you very well, you're brutal killers", Trump said. If you don't get the confirmation within 10 minutes, please check your spam folder.

Ocasio-Cortez's condemnation of Trump's remarks as "anti-Semitic" was met with furious rebuke from conservative backers of the president who noted her relationship with Muslim congresswomen and frequent targets of Trump criticism, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI.

The Israeli American Council is financially backed by one of Trump's top supporters, Miriam and her husband Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate.

Hong Kong sees biggest protests since democrats' election boost
Activists plan another rally on Tuesday evening near the heart of the financial centre to mark International Human rights Day . Demonstrators said they believed that the turnout sent a strong message: The protest movement would not back down.

Trump said he believes thousands of Iranians have been killed in the protests and that thousands more have been arrested.

Regarding the Iranian threat, "We must never allow a regime that chants "Death to America" or "Death to Israel" to obtain a nuclear weapon", he said.

The White House has said its Mideast peace plan is complete and had promised to release it after Israeli elections in September.

In terms of the U.S. -Israel relationship, Trump lamented that it "suffered greatly" under the Obama administration. In August, at Trump's urging, Israel denied Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., entry to the country over their support for the BDS movement.

Trump decried "the vile poison of anti-Semitism", particularly the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) Movement touted by members of Congress, adding that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been "pushed around" by them. "As long as I am your president, it makes no difference". The state GOP closed the event to media coverage.
