This could be an opportunity for the President. There is no chance of President Trump obtaining the majority of the Jewish vote in 2020. However, Trump may be able to chip away at the super-majority that the Democrats enjoy with America’s Jews.
Jews have voting power in swing states such as Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Ohio. Trump may be able to obtain more of the Jewish vote in some of these key swing states in 2020, if he takes advantage of the Democrat Party’s latest betrayal of the American Jewish community. It’s worth a shot.
The AIPAC Policy Conference is rapidly approaching. President Trump should consider addressing the Jewish community and doing something that the Democrat Party refuses to do: condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar for her anti-Semitism.
“Donald Trump says Jews are leaving the Democrats. Are they?,” by Ron Kampeas, JTA, March 12, 2019:
WASHINGTON (JTA) — The House hearing was about foreign aid, and almost as soon as it started it took a political turn: The most powerful congressional appropriator was asking one of Washington’s most influential lobbyists about bipartisanship.
“What in your view would be the consequence of making Israel a political football?” Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., the chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, asked Howard Kohr, AIPAC’s CEO, at a hearing Tuesday of the committee’s Foreign Operations subcommittee.
Kohr, who has led the American Israel Public Affairs Committee for upwards of two decades, leaned into his mic, appearing eager to swing at this softball. U.S. influence in the Middle East depended on Republicans and Democrats working together, he said.
“We will do everything we can [to make sure] that that bipartisanship remains,” Kohr said. “Support for Israel is not a Democratic issue, it’s not a Republican issue and we believe that.”
