Trump mocks Democrat Omar, says ‘I forgot she doesn’t like Israel’

US President Donald Trump smiles at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu right after signing a proclamation formally recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House in Washington Mo

"Under my administration the US will always support Israel's right to self defense", Trump said on Saturday at a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas.

Jewish Americans have a history of overwhelmingly favoring Democratic candidates in presidential elections that Trump and other Republicans are trying to reverse.

US President Donald Trump says he has accepted the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. "No, she doesn't like Israel, does she?" the President told crowds to applause, referencing comments she made about the USA pro-Israel lobby for which she apologised "unequivocally".

Earlier this year, Omar was accused of anti-Semitism when she questioned whether pro-Israel lawmakers had dual loyalty and said support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins".

"The Democrats have even allowed the bad scourge of anti-Semitism to take root in their party and in their country", Trump said.

Netanyahu featured Trump in a recent campaign video, while Trump has made a series of policy moves viewed as strengthening Netanyahu in the eyes of Israeli voters, including relocating the US Embassy to Jerusalem, withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and officially recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory.

Patrick Carlineo Jr., the man charged with threatening Omar, allegedly called the lawmaker a "terrorist" and vowed to put a "bullet in her [expletive] skull" in a phone call with a member of her Washington staff, according to a statement Friday by the US attorney's office for the Western District of NY.

Carlineo told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he is a patriot, "loves the president and that he hates radical Muslims in our government", the criminal complaint says. "Tell me, I don't know", Trump asked the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas. "We do. All of us", Trump said. "Unlike his previous elections, there is a much deeper antagonism toward Netanyahu because of that close affiliation between him and Trump and the Republican Party".

Trump met privately with Adelson before speaking, according to an official. Yoffie also decried Netanyahu's "excessive enthusiasm" for Trump.

Many of men and several women wore red yarmulkes with "Trump" emblazoned in white that were distributed at the event.

Nielsen had grown increasingly frustrated by what she saw as a lack of support from other departments and increased meddling by Trump aides on hard immigration issues, according to three people familiar with details of her resignation. Many liberal Jews prioritize social issues like abortion above Israel, and the mainstream media - many of whom presented laughably slanted accounts of Trump's remarks - are sticking to their 2016 theme of describing Trump as a nascent antisemite. Last week, the White House withdrew the nomination of acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Ronald Vitiello to lead the agency on a permanent basis - a move the president said was part of a "tougher" approach on immigration his administration was undertaking.
