Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to President Donald Trump’s statement in which he said that Jews voting for a Democrat “show either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty”.
Marie said: “Whatever one thinks of the antics of certain Democrat politicians, to single out Jewish voters and accuse them of the ancient slur of ‘disloyalty’ – when antisemitic violence is on the rise – is reckless and flies in the face of President Trump’s professed strong stance against anti-Jewish hate. American Jews – like British Jews – will vote for candidates from any party that best represent them on the full spectrum of issues, from healthcare and education, to fighting antisemitism.”
