Washington - Sarah Sanders, press secretary for United States President Donald Trump, tweeted on Saturday night she was “proud to work” for a president “who stands strong for Israel and all the Jewish people.”

At the end of International Holocaust Memorial Day, Sanders wrote “Proud to work for @POTUS who stands strong for Israel and all the Jewish people #NeverForget #NeverAgain.” In the tweet, she included a link to a video of her father, former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, telling the story of her first visit to Yad Vashem as an 11 year old.

In the video, Huckabee says he took Sanders to Yad Vashem to show how “unique” Israel is, having been created in the wake of the Holocaust. He also told of how Sanders wrote a simple message in the guest book, asking, “why didn’t somebody do something?”

Trump received lavish praise for his December 6 announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and pledge to move the embassy there. A week later, a Smith Research poll taken for The Jerusalem Post found Trump’s popularity to skyrocket among Israelis. In the US, many right-leaning Jewish groups favored the move, while left-leaning groups objected it.

In May 2017, while serving as principal deputy press secretary, Sanders tweeted about Israel during Trump’s visit to the country.

“Israel was amazing. Thank you [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] and [President Reuven Rivlin] for being such great hosts,” she wrote at the time, alongside a picture of the skyline at sunset from her airplane.

Sanders was appointed press secretary in July 2017 and has defended the administration’s positions on Israel during daily press briefings and a number of television appearances.

World leaders, including Trump and US Vice President Mike Pence, remembered International Holocaust Memorial Day on Saturday by sharing messages on Twitter.

A 'reset' with the Toxic Yutz, when his word means absolutely nothing? One word from Sloppy Stevie Miller and he goes back on his word. How many resets does he need, on every issue? The Yutz has back-slid on attacking the CIA, NATO, British Prime Minister, Mexico, the Dreamers, everything else. Dismal performance by Yutzy. Feh.

Sorry Ms Sanders. All wrong. Trump can stand with the State of Israel but thst does not include ALL Jews. We are proud American Jews and have no dual citizenship to the State of Israel. We Jews are NOT represented by Israel nor by Bibi. We are loyal American citizens and President Trump is OUR president. Bibi and Israel does not in any way represent all the jews. And he doesnt even represent quite a many Jews that live in Israel.

She is magnificent, a class act, who chides the fake news press in a very clear yet non-insulting manner. Great pick from the president, as usual.

And to think that left, liberals, dems, haters of all kinds tried accusing this Pres. Of being an anti semite! Can anyone deny how dishonest the left is?????? They’ll make up anything about him, and once their claims are proven false, they’re on to the next lie. It’s an embarrassment to be a Democrat these days, much less a bleeding heart lib....

Uh? That would be a resounding YES.

Yes the party of slavery is also the party that is anti Semitic, they kind of go hand in hand.

Isn’t it beautiful when people speak about Jews or when the world looks at Jews they look at it as if we are one big family. Besides Isn’t it what the Bible teaches us to be like. The problem is you type of people is what creates the separation between Jews you’re the one who puts up a wall and makes problems for the rest of the loving Jewish people

Very wrong . As far as the goyim are concerned we are united . If you support Jews you are our friend . This very crucial fact that Zionism does not represent true Judaism is something for us frum Jews to have in mind among us . But on the external front we are all one . This was the Shita of all das Torah even the kanoim among us . Yours is not das Torah

Israel supporter? That's strange, when I think of him as a supporter, it is more of the athletic variety.
