Former President Donald Trump called out “liberal Jews” who do not support him on his Truth Social platform.

In a Jewish New Year post, Trump captioned, “Just a quick reminder for liberal Jews who voted to destroy America and Israel Because you believed False Narratives!”

Trump’s post consists of a list of achievements for the Jewish community during his term. This list mentions the “Never Again” Education bill that aims to spread awareness of the Holocaust. Trump also cited the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “No past president had the balls to do it before,” he said.

His caption continues: “Let’s hope you learned from your mistakes and make better choices moving forward!”

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-New York), who is Jewish, also posted: “Next time you attack American Jews, think twice before about doing it on one of our holiest days. Your antisemitism is loud and clear.”
