So I have a question for you, but I also have a follow-up to my colleague because I didn’t hear you actually answer the question. So, yes or no: Does the President truly believe that Democrats hate Jews?
I am not going to comment on a potentially leaked document. I can tell you what – I can tell you what –
Does he think – does he think Democrats hate Jewish people, as he said on the South Lawn?
I think that they’ve had a lot of opportunities over last few weeks to condemn some abhorrent comments.
But I’m asking about the President specifically.
I’m trying to answer you. If you’d stop talking, I’ll finish my statement.
Just a yes-or-no question.

The President has had — and laid out clearly his position on this matter. Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that. That’s a question, frankly, I think you should ask Democrats what their position is, since they’re unwilling to call this what it is, and call it out by name, and take actual action —
So is that a yes?
— against members who have done things like this, like the Republicans have done when they had the same opportunity.
So I want to ask you about Paul Manafort, but I just want to be very clear. You’re not answering the question. Is there a reason?
I believe I answered it twice.
You didn’t say yes or no. Does he really believe Democrats hate Jews? I’m just trying to get a sense of that.
I think that’s a question you ought to ask the Democrats.

And just to get back to Jon and Hallie’s question about the President’s comments about Democrats and Jewish people, isn’t that kind of rhetoric just, sort of, beneath everybody?
And – and do you think that the President has thought at all – going into this 2020 campaign – that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered, whether it’s talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants? Or should we just plan on hearing the President use the same kind of language that we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple of years of this Administration?
Look, I think that the real shame in all of this is that Democrats are perfectly capable of coming together and agreeing on the fact that they’re comfortable ripping babies straight from a mother’s womb or killing a baby after birth, but they have a hard time condemning the type of comments from Congresswoman Omar. I think that is a great shame. The President has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people in the community of Israel. And beyond that, I don’t have anything further for you, Jim.
Don’t you think that just, sort of, drags down the rhetoric in the debate when you’re saying something that’s just patently untrue? I mean, obviously —
Stating their policy positions is not patently untrue.
But Democrats don’t — but Democrats don’t hate Jewish people. That’s just silly. It’s not true. So —
I think they should call out their members by name, and we’ve made that clear. I don’t have anything further to add.
But the President — you know, he —
Sorry, Jim. April, go ahead.
His rhetoric after Charlottesville, saying that there “are very fine people on both sides” in Charlottesville, essentially suggesting that there are very fine people in the Nazis. You know —

That’s not at all what the President was stating, not then, not at any point. The President has been incredibly clear, and consistently and repeatedly condemned hatred, bigotry, racism, in all of its forms, whether it’s in America or anywhere else. And to say otherwise is simply untrue.
