Donald Trump Goes Dark in Anti-Semitic Truth Social Post: ‘U.S. Jews have to get their act together … Before it’s Too Late’

Donald Trump and Kanye West have always been somewhat of two peas in a pod – but now they're doubly so.
West has been banned from multiple social media platforms in the past week for anti-Semitic comments, and it seems like his buddy Trump is trying to one-up him.
Trump went dark in a Sunday post that warned US Jews to be more appreciative.

Donald Trump’s Anti-Semitic Remarks on Truth Social
Trump's rhetoric against Jewish people living in the United States is nothing new – he's long praised "his followers" in Israel and chastised Jewish people closer to home for what he calls their lack of support.
But Sunday's comment was dark and ominous, even for Trump.
He started a post with, "No President has done more for Israel than I have. Somewhat surprisingly, however, our wonderful Evangelicals are far more appreciative of this than the people of the Jewish faith, especially those living in the U.S. Those living in Israel, though, are a different story – Highest approval rating in the World, could easily be P.M.!"
But then he concluded with, "U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel – Before it is too late!"
Too late for what is a question the former POTUS didn't answer, but it's disturbingly open anti-Semitism which mainstream media immediately called him out for.
Perhaps in an effort to bury the controversial comment, Trump went on a posting spree shortly after – including first truth-ing and then re-truth-ing his support for Lee Zeldin multiple times. Zeldin is running for governor of New York.
Trump’s Uncertain January 6 Panel Subpoena
Asked if it would be acceptable for former Pres. Trump to come testify live before the Jan. 6 Committee, GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger tells @GStephanopoulos: “I think that’s going to be a negotiation.” https://t.co/Stn129z6e0 pic.twitter.com/1sdf2EBE3A— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) October 17, 2022
One thing the former POTUS still hasn't addressed conclusively is whether he will sit before the January 6 House panel in answer to a unanimous subpoena. After the subpoena was issued, Trump responded with a rambling and somewhat incoherent 14-page letter which continued to push the lie that the 2020 election was rigged and stolen, and blasted the panel for not investigating what he called "fraud" in 2020.
Trump has suggested that he will sit to speak with the panel if it's televised live.
ABC News reports, "The House Jan. 6 committee investigating last year's Capitol riot would need to negotiate with former President Donald Trump if he were to offer to testify live in response to the panel's subpoena, Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Sunday.
'I think that's going to be a negotiation,' Kinzinger, R-Ill., a member of the committee, told ABC 'This Week' anchor George Stephanopoulos. 'I'll only address that when we know for sure whether or not the president has tried to push to come in and talk to us live.'
'He's made it clear he has nothing to hide, [that's] what he said. So he should come in on the day we asked him to come in. If he pushes off beyond that, we'll figure out what to do next,' Kinzinger said."
Trump testifying live could be a nightmare for his legal team, who already has to step twice as fast to get ahead of his online posting as they try to shield him from multiple criminal investigations and a civil lawsuit in New York (among others).
But if live testimony is how the panel gets him to speak, the House panel could agree to it – and quickly.
