The president received a lot of backlash Thursday after pressuring Israel into banning Muslim Reps Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel. Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu is being mocked for falling for Trump’s manipulations, essentially getting behind the U.S. president’s racist Muslim Ban agenda.
Since Israel made their announcement, many politicians have spoken out against the move, including liberal rockstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who tweeted this:
MoC are frequently asked to visit Israel to “see things for ourselves.”
But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all.
Trump is exporting his bigotry &making matters worse. https://t.co/PFdMDxuIfJ
