President Donald Trump is trying to make the case for Jewish voters to back his re-election as he takes a victory lap with Republican donors in Las Vegas.
Trump was scheduled to speak Saturday at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which supported his 2016 campaign and is preparing to spend millions on his 2020 effort.
Jewish voters in the U.S. have traditionally sided heavily with Democrats, but Republicans are hoping to narrow the gap next year, in part as Trump cites actions that he says show hes more pro-Israel.
Trumps speech comes weeks after he suggested Democrats hate Jews. His remark came as Democrats engaged in an internal fight over how to respond to comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that were criticized by some as anti-Semitic.
Before Trumps appearance, people assembling for the event carried signs with We are Jews for Trump and Trump written in Hebrew. Dozens of men and several women wore red yarmulkes with Trump in white.

He shouldn’t have to say a word.
They just need to listen to dems.
Jewish voters need to wake up. The Dems are not their friends, they just want their votes. Republicans and Trump are the ones who are helping Israel and the Jewish people.
Just let the new “People of Color” constituency keep doing what they’re doing, and Jews will flee the Democrats.
Self loathing is a horrible thing apparently. Guess we don’t understand their dislike of conservatism.
He’s not after the tiny Jewish vote.
He wants to cut off the Jewish cash flow to the Rat party.
By far, that’s the way to go.
Let them get their money from the illegals and the Jihadists that they now represent.
“Jewish voters in the U.S. have traditionally sided heavily with Democrats”
God knows why. Same with blacks. I mean hello, Democraps had a KKK recruiter still serving in the Senate as late as 2010, now they have a Sharia supremacist as well. This is supporting blacks and Jews how?
“He shouldnt have to say a word. They just need to listen to dems.”
And they’ll vote for Democrats by 90% anyway.
Trump is wasting his time here. Don’t waste your time trying to sway people that hate your guts.
“Hes not after the tiny Jewish vote.
He wants to cut off the Jewish cash flow to the Rat party”
Very true. Jewish people are only 2% of the population but account for 50% of funds financing the Dem party.
Best you can hope for is to stem the flow of money and hope they don’t show up to vote because when they do 75& of their vote goes to Dems.
Look Jews are just people too
anybody to cant see that our great and wonderful president Donald J Trump, Republican or not , is doing a great job for this country, knows what hes doing, and should be re-elected - then youre a complete moron
Most Jewish Americans are not comfortable with the Republican political themes of individualism, self-reliance, and limited government, even though the modern Republican Party, in practice, is almost as far Left on social issues as the Democrat Party.
Trump will not get more than 30% of the Jewish vote, and Florida is probably the only state where it will matter.
I hope you are conservative in the number of votes Trump will get, and it does matter outside of FL. Specifically PA, OH, and MI, all states the Trump needs to win again in 2020.
The intermarriage rates of Jewish people is very high, particularly among non-Orthodox Jews.
The notion of a Jewish vote or Jewish bloc is an oversimplification of what is actually on the ground.
A small number of wealthy Jews give large contributions to the Democratic Party. They represent themselves and nobody else.
There are so many larger demographics that can net more votes. The Jews are a tiny percentage to begin with, and only a tiny percentage of them would even consider voting for Trump.
What a waste of time!
In general, I agree with you.
Specifically, I was thinking of southeast Florida when I wrote my comment.
Miami Beach and Broward and Palm Beach counties have very large and politically important Jewish communities.
