Following a "Fox & Friends" interview with "Jexodus" activist Elizabeth Pipko, the president quoted Pipko in a tweet, writing that the Democratic Party doesn't "care" about Jewish people in America.

“Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party," Trump tweeted, quoting the conservative activist. "We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.”

The website for Jexodus describes the movement as a group of Jewish voters tired of "bondage to leftist politics" and "hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left."

Trump has made similar comments in recent days, slamming Omar for comments she made on Twitter that were criticized by some as anti-Semitic. 

Omar made headlines last week when she suggested that politicians who support Israel do so out of allegiance to a foreign country. She later apologized for the remarks.

Following outrage over the comment, the House passed a resolution on Thursday to condemn hatred and bigotry, including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. The resolution, which did not name Omar, was originally expected to condemn anti-Semitism alone.
