    Trump’s remark came as House Democrats seemed reluctant to vote on a planned resolution condemning anti-Semitism which was brought forward after freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar made controversial remarks that were seen by critics as anti-Semitic.

    It appears that US President Donald Trump has once again demonstrated his uncanny knack of stirring up social media as he grilled Democrats on Twitter over a possible resolution aimed at condemning anti-Semitism.

    The president claimed that “it is shameful that House Democrats won’t take a stronger stand against Anti-Semitism in their conference”, adding that “anti-Semitism has fueled atrocities throughout history and it’s inconceivable they will not act to condemn it”.

    ​In response, many people were quick to accuse Trump of hypocrisy.

    ​Some, however, appeared to be swayed by the president’s reasoning.

    ​Trump delivered his remark as House Democrats seemed reluctant to vote on a planned resolution condemning anti-Semitism which was brought forward after freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar made controversial remarks that were seen by critics as anti-Semitic.
