“Anti-Semitism Has No Place in Congress!” – VP Mike Pence Calls for Ilhan Omar’s Removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee at AIPAC (VIDEO)

Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Monday morning.

President Donald Trump was holding meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the same time in the White House Oval Office.

Pence went after the anti-Semitic Democratic freshman Ilhan Omar and called for her to be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee!

“It is astonishing to think that the party of Harry Truman, has been coopted by people who promote rank anti-Semitic rhetoric and work to undermine the broad American consensus on Israel.  Recently, a freshman Democrat in Congress trafficked in anti-Semitic tropes, alleged Congressional support for Israel reflected an allegiance to a foreign country.   Said, Israel, and I quote, “hypnotized the world,”  and she accused Americans who support Israel of  being bought off by campaign contributions.  Anti-Semitism has no place in the Congress of the United States of America! …  And at a minimum anyone who slanders those who support this historic alliance between the United States and Israel  should never have a seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee!”
