President Donald Trump accused the Democrats of being the “anti-Jewish party” as the House passed a broad resolution that failed to name Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn for her alleged anti-Semitic remarks.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was also reportedly "taken aback" by growing criticism Democrats in the run-up to the resolution

“The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

“I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else, if you get an honest answer."

Trump's comments came after the house passed the watered-down resolution on Thursday condemning multiple forms of hate speech and bigotry in response to Omar's twitter remarks.

But the new Democratic House majority criticized the resolution.

A Democratic source told Fox News on Wednesday that Pelosi is grappling to keep her tenuous control over the House due to the growing power of the party's nascent far-left progressive wing.

But Democrats defending Omar pushed for the resolution to include language condemning statements that insult Muslims amongst other groups.

Republicans said final resolution was watered down and avoided condemnation of Omar's remarks.

According to The Washington Examiner: The final version of the measure did not mention Omar by name, but both Republicans and Democrats have condemned what many lawmakers say is a pattern of anti-Semitic tweets from the Minnesota Democrat.

In the end, the resolution’s text also called out white supremacists for targeting “African-Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBT community, immigrants, and others with verbal attacks, incitement, and violence.”

The resolution also rejects the “perpetuation of anti-Semitic stereotypes in the United States and around the world, including the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and allegiance, especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance,” a reference to Omar’s comments.

Omar invoked further criticism last week for suggesting some politicians in Washington were "pushing for allegiance" to Israel.

Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib also made a similar remark Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel in January.

The congresswoman's accusation that Jewish politicians could be exposed to having "dual loyalties" has been made in various contexts for years, and widely seen as a religious-based attack.
