(PatrioticPost.com)- Former President Donald Trump criticized American Jewish Democrats for voting against Israel when he was a keynote speaker at the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) 2022 Gala in New York City last week. He praised the Jewish state as a “modern-day miracle,” according to Breitbart.
The ZOA is reportedly the oldest pro-Israel organization in the United States and has awarded many leaders over the years with the Theodor Herzl Gold Medallion. Recognizing Trump to have contributed to the safety and security of Israel, Trump was added to the list of recipients of the award, including Lord Arthur Balfour, former British prime minister Winston Churchill, former U.S. president Harry Truman, and former Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion.
Trump discussed relations between the United States and Israel, saying that while they are not military allies, they are both economic and political allies.
“We’re allies morally, culturally, and spiritually and we always will be—at least if I have anything to do about it,” he said.
He boasted of the strongest ties between the two nations under his leadership, asserting that “the future of the Middle East had never looked brighter.”
He also criticized American Jews for voting for Democrats, alleging that the party receives 75% of the Jewish vote. He couldn’t believe it and said that it can’t continue after all of the terrible things done under President Biden and Barack Hussein Obama.
While saying that Israel was a “special place” and a “miracle,” the former president described the nation as “delicate” because of the bad things that could happen to it.
Trump reportedly enjoys a favorable track record with Jews, implementing the Abraham Accords to strengthen ties between Israel and Arab states, moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, acknowledging Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal that he claims was not in Israel or the U.S.’s best interests, and ending U.S. funding that subsidized Palestinian terrorists.
Other accomplishments include eliminating Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, who was responsible for numerous American deaths, and becoming the first president to visit the Western Wall, according to Breitbart.
