Former President Trump late Sunday shared an image on Truth Social telling “liberal Jews” to “make better choices” amid celebrations of the Jewish New Year.
Trump shared a photo on Sunday evening without any caption of his own. The photo included the message: “Just a quick reminder for liberal Jews who voted to destroy America & Israel because you believed false narratives! Let’s hope you learned from your mistake & make better choices moving forward! Happy New Year!”
The image included a list of measures Trump took while in the White House in support of Israel, including his decision to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights territory.
It also included the hashtags “#Trump2020” and “#Jexit,” a term some Republicans coined during the 2020 election urging Jewish voters to back Trump.
Trump shared the post at the end of Rosh Hashanah, which is the celebration of the Jewish New Year. The post drew criticism from liberals, as well as some Republicans.
“Confirmed: this is a real post on Trump’s Truth Social. Waaaake up, @GOP. This is disgraceful,” former Trump communications director Alyssa Farah posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Trump frequently touted himself as Israel’s greatest ally, but he has on multiple occasions attacked Jewish voters who do not support him.
Trump in 2019 said Jewish people who vote for Democrats are either ignorant or disloyal.
Last October, Trump drew backlash after he wrote on Truth Social that “U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel – Before it is too late!”
