After Omar said that the U.S. support for Israel was motivated by donations from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, several House Democrats dubbed the comments as offensive and invoking anti-Semitic stereotypes.

Last week's question: Should President Donald Trump give pardons to former aides, advisers charged with crimes in the Mueller probe?

"It's troubling", said Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America.

"They (asylum seekers) read a little page given by lawyers that are all over the place - you know lawyers, they tell them what to say".

"I stood with your Prime Minister at the White House to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights".

President Donald Trump warned on Saturday that a Democratic victory in 2020 could "leave Israel out there", as he highlighted his pro-Israel actions in an effort to make the case for Jewish voters to back his re-election. Some of the roughest people you've ever seen.

"Understand", she wrote, "when Jeanine Pirro goes on Fox [and] rallies people to think hijabs are threatening, it leads to this". That's not a good sign. Growing numbers of families are fleeing poverty and gang violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Trump started his speech mocking Omar.

Nevada gambling regulators in February fined his former company Wynn Resorts a record $20 million for failing to investigate the allegations before Wynn resigned. The agreement was fiercely opposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has cheered as Trump re-imposed stringent new sanctions on the country that Israel regards as an existential threat.

"Two good people", he tells the members of the Republican Jewish Coalition who are meeting in Las Vegas. At their March 25 meeting, Trump signed a proclamation officially granting US recognition of the Golan as Israeli territory, a dramatic departure from decades of USA policy.

This was the not the only comment in Trump's speech that seemingly conflated Jews and Israelis.

As he mentions the embassy decision, he's calling out two members of the audience at his speech in Las Vegas - major GOP donors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson. "But no it's not, it's largely stolen", Trump said.

"Regardless of the victor, the utter erasure of Palestinian humanity from this election cycle and the normalization of an undemocratic and immoral military occupation should alarm any Jew who cares about freedom and dignity of Israelis and Palestinians", Mayer said in an email. We can't handle any more, our country is full.

The threat was referred to the US Capitol Police, who launched a probe in coordination with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department said.
