This Saturday, Trump laid his antisemitism out in the open.
“A lot of you are in the real estate business ... You’re brutal killers. You’re not nice people at all, but you have to vote for me. You have no choice,” Trump said to the Israeli American Council.
These words, said by the President of the United States, are scary and dangerous. His words have incited violence, questioned our loyalty, and spread lies. Trump endangers Jews.
But we have a choice: We can remove Trump from office in 2020.
In 2020, your donation will fund:
- Our close work with the coalition to impeach Trump
- Mobilizing Jewish volunteers in the leadup to the election
- Combating antisemitism and white nationalism to keep safe all communities under attack
Trump continued: “You’re not going to vote for Pocahontas [a racist slur Trump uses for Elizabeth Warren], I can tell you that. You’re not going to vote for the wealth tax!”
Trump is invoking stereotypes about Jews and money that fuel the white nationalist movement — Jews as monied elite and secret puppeteers. These are the same stereotypes that have incited far-right violence, from Pittsburgh to Poway to El Paso.
This President and the white nationalist movement endanger Jews, Native people, women, immigrants, people of color, and so many others.
It’s why Bend the Arc’s mission in 2020 is to remove Trump from office, protect our communities from another year of attacks, and build the multiracial democracy of our dreams.
Bend the Arc is one of the only Jewish organizations that can go directly after Trump — and we’re not holding back. We led the Jewish resistance to Trump beginning in 2015 and you’ve helped grow this movement every year since. Where national Jewish institutions are silent, we will keep speaking out.
Together, we will keep organizing and we will keep giving Jews and allies opportunities to fight for a country where we’re all safe.
