"Oh, oh, oh I forgot, she doesn't like Israel, I forgot, I'm so sorry".

It's another legal setback for President Donald Trump's efforts to curb immigration.

"Some of the roughest people you've ever seen, people that look like they should be fighting for the UFC", he said, referencing the Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial arts promotion company.

Trump's decision to speak at the meeting comes as Israel has been in the forefront of the news in recent weeks. The agreement was fiercely opposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has cheered as Trump re-imposed stringent new sanctions on the country that Israel regards as an existential threat. "Tell me, I don't know", Trump asked the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas.

Trump is saying that "unlike other presidents, I keep my promises" and he calls the embassy move an example of a "historic action that had been decades in waiting".

Trump noted it had always been a priority for Adelson and his wife, Miriam.

Nielsen had grown increasingly frustrated by what she saw as a lack of support from other departments and increased meddling by Trump aides on hard immigration issues, according to three people familiar with details of her resignation.

Trump has justified blocking asylum seekers from entering the United States by claiming that many asylum seekers are trying to carry out a scam - that they are coached to file false asylum claims knowing that they will be released into the country because of a lack of detention bed space.

The Adelsons gave President Donald Trump's campaign $30 million in 2016.

The president appears to be playing to fears, warning Jewish Republicans that if Democrats win in 2020, they would "leave Israel out there", according to the Daily Mail. - Trump responded, "I think it's going to be close".

Trump, who typically demands short, sharp briefings and is known for his colorful retelling of stories, said Friedman was shocked, "like a wonderful, attractive baby", and asked the president if he would actually do it.

However, the enthusiastic audience at the RJC event was unfazed by Trump's remarks.

Introducing Trump, former Sen.

"Regardless of the victor, the utter erasure of Palestinian humanity from this election cycle and the normalization of an undemocratic and immoral military occupation should alarm any Jew who cares about freedom and dignity of Israelis and Palestinians", Mayer said in an email.

That might seem a false hope after the 2018 midterm elections, when more than 75 percent of Jews voted for Democratic candidates. Jewish voters identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party over the Republican Party by a roughly 2-1 ratio.
