President Trump called on Jewish people Friday to join the “Jexodus’ movement” following “total disrespect” by Democrats.

The president advertised the “Jexodus” grassroots campaign, a movement to get Jewish millennials to leave the Democratic Party, as part of a continued claim that the party is anti-Semitic.

“The ‘Jexodus’ movement encourages Jewish people to leave the Democrat Party,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “Total disrespect! Republicans are waiting with open arms. Remember Jerusalem (U.S. Embassy) and the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal!”

Mr. Trump’s response came after an interview on One America News Network with Elizabeth Pipko, a reported spokeswoman for the “Jexodus” movement.

“We’re super excited to get people involved, excited for 2020, finally voting to our own values, our own conscience and ready to fight against the narrative that tells us what we should do and who we should vote for,” she said.

The president and Republicans have been saying that Democrats are the “anti-Israel” party after freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, Minnesota Democrat, made comments about supporting Israel that many said were anti-Semitic.

Her comment led Democrats to pass a bill in the House denouncing prejudice of all kinds, but many said it did not go far enough to condemn her comments.
