Donald Trump lashed out at Democrats after the House overwhelmingly passed an anti-hate resolution, calling them "Anti-Israel" and an "Anti-Jewish party" because the resolution covered all forms of hate and not just anti-Jewish hate. Ironically, the vote Donald criticized passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority so Trump's description of it being "disgraceful" is somewhat odd. Trump's charge also falls on deaf ears considering he has so far refused to criticize his own supporters who espouse right-wing antisemitism.
