Trump Calls House Resolution on Anti-Semitism 'Disgraceful'

Omar (D-Minnesota) has been a longtime opponent of the Israeli government, accusing it of "evil doings" in a 2012 tweet, then suggested recently that there is "political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country", a reference to the powerful Israel lobby.

"For the president, who when neo-Nazis marched in Charlottesville in front of a synagogue and said "burn it down" and he said "both sides" are to blame, this is a new divisive low", the Democrat from NY, who is Jewish, wrote on Facebook.

"I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful", he told reporters at the White House.

In response, the Democratic party argued over whether Omar should be singled out and what other types of bias should be decried in the text of the House resolution.

The House passed the resolution in a 407-23 vote, with Democrats attempting to overcome a dispute that has overwhelmed their agenda and exposed fault lines that could shadow them through next year's elections.

Host Sandra Smith played a clip of President Donald Trump's labeling the Democrats an anti-Israel and anti-Jewish party.

The original resolution focused more on denouncing anti-Semitism but morphed into a resolution condemning various other forms of bigotry against minorities in the U.S.

"I will go with what [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi said because I believe this". So Ms. Pelosi, the leader of the House of Representatives, swore she would generate legislation that would make Ms. Omar's remarks prohibited and off limits for the House in the future.

"I don't think that the congresswoman, perhaps, appreciates the full weight of how it was heard by other people", Pelosi said. "But the fact is if that's how it was interpreted, we have to remove all doubt, as we have done over and over again".

"If [Omar] was a Republican, that member's name would be in this resolution and this resolution would be all about condemning antisemitism and it would be done so forcefully", Zeldin said in a fiery House floor speech.

"Something that is one resolution, addressing these forms of hatred, not mentioning her name because it's not about her", she explained.

Pelosi concluded by pointing out her confidence that Omar's remarks were more innocent than some people were willing to take them. "I think she has a different experience in the use of words, [and] doesn't understand that some of them are fraught with meaning".
