Former US president Donald Trump said on Monday that the “Democrat Party hates Israel”.

He was speaking on the Salem Radio Network with Sebastian Gorka on his America First show.

When asked why he thought the Biden administration, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, disliked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump replied: “I actually think they hate Israel. I don’t think they hate him [Netanyahu]. I think they hate Israel. The Democrat Party hates Israel.”

Trump went on to say the reason Democrats did not have support for Israel came down to votes.

Trump said: “When you see those Palestinian marches, even…I’m amazed at how many people are at those marches, and guys like Schumer see that and to him its votes. I think its votes more than anything else because he was always pro-Israel. He’s very anti-Israel now.’

The former president said that Jews who vote for the Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.

He said: “Any Jewish person that votes for Democrats hates their religion. They hate everything about Israel. And they should be ashamed of themselves, because Israel will be destroyed.”

He argued that as president he ended Iran’s nuclear agreement, and paused the Tehran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.

He claimed that he would have forged another deal with Iran “that would have been good for everybody, with no nuclear weapons.”

He said: “With me Iran was broke. They were absolutely stone-cold broke. There was no terrorism because they didn’t have money to fund Hamas and Hezbollah and the other 28 groups. They had no money. They were stone-cold broke.”

He described officials in the Democrat party as “the worst, there’s something wrong with them. They are the worst negotiators. All they are good at is evil. They are evil people. Sick. Evil.”

He claimed under President Joe Biden the US had become “like a puppet for China now”.

He called Biden the “worst president in the history of our country by 10 times. There’s never been anything like it. Jimmy Carter is the only one happy because he’s a brilliant president compared to Biden.”

On Sunday, Trump told Fox News said there was “100 per cent no question” Schumer and the Biden administration are telling Israel how to run its government.

He said: “The Democrats are very bad for Israel. Israel sticks with them. I guess Israel’s loyal maybe to a fault because they stick with these guys.”
