Trump says it is 'incredible' that Jews vote Democrat as Biden '100 percent' on the Palestinian side

Speaking to the conservative Real America’s Voice network, former US President Donald Trump said that "any Jewish person that votes for Biden does not love Israel and, frankly, should be spoken to".

He added that he does not understand "how a Jewish person can vote for Biden or a Democrat because they are on the side 100 percent of the Palestinians".

Trump also said that he was “more pro-Israel than any other president by far with Golan Heights - throw that one in there by the way… nobody even asked for it, and I got that for them”, referring to his recognition of Israel's annexation of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. 

The former president also highlighted his decisions to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the US embassy there.

"Frankly, it’s incredible that historically Jewish people vote for Democrats," he said. "I don’t understand that."
