Press Release

White Plains, NY – Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (D-Rockland/Westchester), Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, today released the following statement in response to the President’s comments accusing Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats of disloyalty:

“The president’s charge that Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats are disloyal plays off a longtime anti-Semitic trope. His rhetoric has enabled white supremacy, hate, racism and even violence. It is unconscionable that the U.S. President stokes such dangerous division.”
