The White House condemned former President Donald Trump’s criticisms of American Jews as “antisemitic” and “insulting” to both them and Israel. 

Trump on Sunday posted a message on his Truth Social account accusing Jews of being ungrateful to him despite his supportive actions toward Israel. His post played on an antisemitic trope that American Jews have a stronger loyalty to Israel than to the US.
