Rep. Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) excoriated House Democrats for failing to put forward a resolution focused exclusively on condemning anti-Semitism in the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D., Minn.) remarks accusing Israel's supporters of having dual allegiance.

Speaking to reporters in the grounds of the White House, the President said: "I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful, because it's become - the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party".

Newly installed House Democrat Ilhan Omar recently made a racist, anti-Semitic statement about Jews in general and Israel in particular which raised the hackles of all thinking Americans, and places in question not only the quality of people the Democrats allow in their party, but also the wisdom of the people voting for such fools and putting them in office.

Democrats boast the most gender- and ethnically diverse House in US history after November's election, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi found herself embroiled in the downside of what that diversity means.

In response, the Democratic party argued over whether Omar should be singled out and what other types of bias should be decried in the text of the House resolution.

"It is shameful that House Democrats won't take a stronger stand against anti-Semitism in their conference".

The Jewish Schumer wrote on Facebook that Trump's comments were "a new divisive low", adding that "when neo-Nazis marched in Charlottesville in front of a synagogue and said "burn it down"...he said "both sides" are to blame".

Criticism didn't just come from the GOP, but from some of Omar's fellow Democrats.

On Thursday, the House passed the broadened resolution which condemns "antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry", after freshman members and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) accused their leadership of unfairly targeting Ilhan Omar, a representative from Minnesota, over her recent comments accusing Israel advocates of dual loyalties.

"I don't think that the congresswoman perhaps appreciated the full weight of how it was heard by other people, although I don't believe it was intended in an anti-Semitic way", she explained.

Bernie Sanders, who is looking to stage another presidential campaign in 2020, also defended Omar. "I apparently am giving Rep. Omar more credit than the speaker is because I don't believe she is naive". "That's wrong", Sanders said.

But Democrats insisted Trump was out of bounds to suggest their party was anti-Jewish. Executive Director Halie Soifer said "We are appalled, but not surprised, that President Trump has once again demonstrated dishonesty, hypocrisy, and willingness to use anti-Semitism and Israel as a political football".
