President Trump promoted a movement encouraging Jewish voters to leave the Democratic Party on Tuesday over remarks made by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Trump tweeted: “Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people. Elizabeth Pipko, Jexodus.’

A few days after declaring the Democratic Party the “anti-Israel” and “anti-Jewish” party, President Trump promoted the nascent “Jexodus” movement, urging young Jewish Democrats to abandon the party.
As The Daily Wire reported last week, Jexodus is a newly formed group geared toward “Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics.” In a press release announcing its launch, Jexodus laid out its mission:
We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left. Progressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted. After all, we’re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats.
We are determined and we are unafraid to speak for ourselves. As combatants and veterans of the campus wars, we know the threat progressivism poses to Jews. We’ve had front row seats witnessing anti-Semites hide behind the thin veil of anti-Zionism. We know the BDS movement harbors deep hatred not only for Israel, but for Jews. We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies. We’d rather spend forty years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. More
I have never understood how so many Jewish people could vote Democratic. I certainly hope they have seen the light with all the hatred spewed by Omar, Tlaib, and AOC.
These women are the future of the Democratic Party, and that is terrifying. Pelosi doesn’t know how to rein in these them in. Hypocrites.
