JEXODUS: Young Jewish Americans Drop Democrats in Favor of Trump
Anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party triggers new movement of exodus
Following the recent anti-semitic remarks by radical progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to reprimand her, the scandal has triggered a new movement for young Jewish people to leave the Democratic Party en masse.
President Donald Trump showed his support for the movement on Tuesday, by tweeting a quote from the "Jexodus" movement's spokesperson Elizabeth Pipko.
“Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party,” explains Pipko in the statement quoted by President Trump.
"We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts & worse.
"There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party.
"They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people."

According to Sara S Carter, young Jewish Americans are leading a mass exodus out of the Democratic Party.
The new movement, called "JEXODUS" calls itself a group of "proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics."
On Monday, JEXODUS Spokeswoman and Former Trump Campaign Staffer Elizabeth Pipko told “Fox & Friends” that it was a shift in policy under the Obama administration that sparked anti-Israel sentiments in the Democratic Party.
Pipko discussed the strong U.S. Israel relationship under the Trump Administration and the Embassy move to Jerusalem as obvious successes for the Jewish community in America.
However, Pipko said the Jewish left fails to recognize these achievements.
“We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left,” a message on the site reads.
“Progressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted.
"After all, we’re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats. Until today.”
American Jews supported Hillary Clinton over Trump by 71-24, the largest margin of any of the denominations (including “unaffiliated”) surveyed by Pew Research and consistent with the results of the last five presidential elections.
“We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies,” said a press release announcing the site’s launch.
