Fmr. Amb. to Israel: ‘I Was Really Troubled’ By Trump’s Answer on the Rise of Anti-Semitism

‘This is a pattern that has now repeat it had self several times out of this White House’

RUSH EXCERPT:
SHAPIRO: "I was really troubled by it, Jake. This is a pattern that has now repeat it had self several times out of this White House. Of course, they had a holocaust memorial day statement that didn’t mention the Jews were the main target of the Nazis in the holocaust. A number of other ways they have sent winks or nods or dog whistles to very extreme elements in our society who now have felt since the election empowered to express really outrageous anti-semitic views. I don’t say he’s anti-semite. But I really couldn't understand how, asked with a direct question, how does he feel or how does he respond to the increase iin anti-semitic incidents since his election. He didn’t use the word anti-semitism much less condemn it. That was very troubling to me."
