Former President Trump shared an image on Truth Social on Sunday afternoon telling “liberal Jews” to “make better decisions” amid Jewish New Year celebrations.
Trump shared a photo Sunday evening without a caption of his own. The photo included the message: “Just a quick reminder to the liberal Jews who voted to destroy America and Israel because you believe false narratives! We hope you’ve learned from your mistake and make better choices moving forward! Happy New Year!”
The image included a list of steps Trump took while in the White House in support of Israel, including his decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the territory of the Golan Heights. .
It also included the hashtags “#Trump2020” and “#Jexit,” a term some Republicans coined during the 2020 election to urge Jewish voters to support Trump.
trump shared the post at the end of Rosh Hashanah, which is the celebration of the Jewish New Year. The message drew criticism from liberals, as well as some Republicans.
“Confirmed: This is a real post on Trump’s Truth Social. Waaaaak up, @GOP. This is a disgrace,” former Trump communications director Alyssa Farah posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Trump has often presented himself as Israel’s best ally, but has repeatedly attacked Jewish voters who do not support him.
