Trump: History Lesson Led to Golan Heights Decision

President Donald Trump seemed to refer to a crowd of Jewish Republicans as Israelis multiple times within a speech Saturday.

Trump greeted the supporters of about 2,000 with the Hebrew greeting "Shabbat shalom".

The protest was staged by IfNotNow, an American Jewish activist group.

Jack Rosen, president of the American Jewish Congress, said any surge in Netanyahu fatigue should not be interpreted as a weakening of American Jews' support for Israeli. Seizing on the controversy, Trump tweeted his support for a purported "Jexodus" movement that would encourage Jews to leave the Democratic Party. "Well, you guys didn't", Trump joked to the Republican. The government argued it was needed because so many asylum seekers spend years living in the United States and never appear for their court hearings before their claim is denied and an immigration judge orders them to be deported.

Speaking at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, Trump touted his precedent-shredding actions to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv and recognition last month of Israeli sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, a strategic plateau that Israel seized from Syria in 1967.

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 15: U.S. President Donald Trump (R) and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (L) answer questions during a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House February 15, 2017 in Washington, DC.

The threat was referred to the US Capitol Police, who launched a probe in coordination with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department said. Several attendees were wearing red yarmulkes bearing "Trump" and "RJC".

But in recent weeks, as a new wave of migration has taxed resources along the border and as Trump sought to regain control of the issue for his 2020 re-election campaign, tensions flared anew.

Downing Street officials have reportedly been in closed discussions with their counterparts at the White House since previous year on the subject of a further visit by President Trump, with both parties expected to make an announcement in the next few days.

Trump thanked and gave shoutouts to a number of Republicans before saying, "And a special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota".

According to prosecutors, Mack recruited women into NXIVM , a network of self-help programs based in Albany, N.Y. Prosecutors accused Mack of helping Raniere recruit women to a secret sub-society within the group.

"The world has come to understand that Netanyahu is essentially the political twin of Donald Trump", said Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of the liberal pro-Israel group J Street. "Oh, please, I apologize".

Trump also called the asylum program "a scam", alleging that lawyers coach tough, violent men through the process.

He said they were historic moves people had waited for decades to see.

Trump mocked those seeking asylum from the border with Mexico. "We don't love the fact that he's got tattoos on his face, that's not a good sign".

The plaintiffs include legal service organizations and migrants who fled Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to escape what they said was extreme violence, rape and death threats.
