In the middle of the Democratic party infighting caused by the anti-Semitic rhetoric we’ve heard from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in recent weeks, Acosta saw fit not to question the comments themselves, but instead President Trump’s grim assessment of the Democratic party’s relationship with the Jewish community.
President Trump: "The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party and that's too bad." https://t.co/cdbpkgw74z pic.twitter.com/RV7H5n9OCR
Also, according to Axios, Trump reportedly told a group of donors at private fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago Friday that “Democrats hate Jewish people.”
Fox News reported on the tense exchange that occurred Monday between Acosta and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders over Trump’s remarks:
“Do you think that the president has thought, at all, going into the 2020 campaign that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered? Whether it’s talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants, or should we just plan on hearing the president use the same kind of language that we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple years of this administration?” Acosta asked.
