The Democrats seem to have a serious racism problem.

Glad to see the Trump administration take the high road.

Glad to see the Trump administration take the high road.

Whilst conveniently ignoring the same administration's deplorable brand of bigotry. It's a curious situation, a PotUS that employed white nationalists and played down anti-Semitism in Charlottesville, was not extremist enough to prevent the likes of the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings... and employs rapturists like Pompeo.

The religious right has a long history of supporting Israel, which must be at odds with their saviour dogma. A strange mix.

She also suggested that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobbying group was paying US politicians to support Israel.

U.S. President Donald Trump seized on the shift and accused the Democrats of becoming an "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish" party.

Another flat-out Trump lie intended to fan flames and further divide the country in his quest to be despot-in-chief. Check above link to see how much money Democratic pols got from the Israel lobby. Check list below of Jewish congress members. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Jewish_members_of_the_United_States_Congress

Both Pompeo and Netanyahu are scheduled to speak at AIPAC's annual conference in Washington next week.

During the 2016 presidential election GoTrumpers in the US and 'abroad' claimed Trump wouldn't be beholden to AIPAC. They also claimed Trump was 'too rich' to be bought off. Could it be possible Sheldon Adelson's millions in contributions to Trump's campaign has had an effect on Trump's policies with regard to Israel? Casinos in Japan? Among others.

"Sadly, we in the United States have seen anti-Semitic language even in the great halls of our own capital," he said.

Typical Repub/Trump hypocrisy - Mr Secretary, maybe you should read what your Repub Colleague Steve King has been posting and saying "in the great halls of our own capital"...

Iowa Rep. Steve King is facing criticism after he defended white nationalism and white supremacy in an interview. "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?" King said to The New York Times. "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"
