Tlaib, Omar hint at cutting aid to Israel


THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO PICK MUSLIMS AND JEWISH PEOPLE AGAINST EACH OTHER, THE WHITE HOUSE IS DEFENDING HIS RELAPSE RIGHT TO RESTRICT THE LAWMAKERS WAS MORE ON THAT. I DEMOCRATS PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS INSTEAD OF SERVING THEIR CONSTITUENTS? LET’S ASK A COMMENTARY WRITER FOR THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER AND DEMOCRATIC STRATEGISTS, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE, WE APPRECIATE IT. IS THERE PARTISAN POLITICS AT PLAY?>>I WOULD SAY YES ON ALL SIDES. I BELIEVE DONALD TRUMP AND BENJAMIN NETANYAHU ARE ALSO PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS. TO ME IT SEEMS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE US AND ISRAEL ESPECIALLY UNDER DONALD TRUMP HAS BECOME ABOUT THEIR OWN PERSONAL AGENDAS. OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL USED TO BE BIPARTISAN. THAT WAS ONE THING BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE COULD AGREE ON, PROVIDING AID TO ISRAEL AND SUPPORT, THEY ARE OUR STRONGEST ALLY IN THE REGION BUT WHEN THEY BLOCK LAWMAKERS FROM ENTERING THE COUNTRY WHO ARE AMERICAN REGARDLESS WHETHER THEY ARE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN I AGREE WITH REPRESENTATIVE OF OMAR THAT THAT’S NOT HOW ALLIES TREAT EACH OTHER. SHANNON: YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER COMMENTS THEY HAVE MADE IN THE PAST.>>THAT IS TRUE AND THEY HAVEN’T MADE FRIENDLY COMMENTS ABOUT ISRAEL BUT IN AMERICA WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH AND PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO VOICE THEIR OPINIONS ABOUT THINGS AND I BELIEVE AS MUCH HELP AS WE GIVE ISRAEL, SHE SAID 4 MILLION BUT IT IS ALMOST 4 BILLION, WE DESERVE BETTER AND I DO BELIEVE IS REAL BEING SO — DONALD TRUMP IS VERY POPULAR IN ISRAEL, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU KNOWS THAT AND HE IS HITCHING HIMSELF TO DONALD TRUMP BUT IT TAKES A BIPARTISAN TO GET THESE AID PACKAGES PAST AND I THINK THEY ARE THREATENING WHAT USED TO BE A GOOD RUN FOR ISRAEL ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE ALWAYS SUPPORT IS REAL, USUALLY, AND THEY ARE THREATENING THAT.>>LET’S BRING IN YOUR OPINION ON THIS.>>WHAT HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST TWO YEARS. I DON’T SEE STENY HOYER INVOKING ANTI-SEMITIC JOKES OR NANCY PELOSI. I DON’T SEE ANY MEMBER OF THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP CHANGING THEIR TUNE ON OUR HISTORICAL ALLY SHIP WITH ISRAEL. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE INTRODUCTION OF THE SQUAD AND SOME OF THE MOST VIOLENT ANTI-SEMITISM WE’VE HAD IN CONGRESS IN YEARS AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU LOOK AT THE FACT THAT YESTERDAY ILHAN OMAR LIVE THROUGH HER TEETH TO HER CONSTITUENTS ABOUT THE NATURE OF HER TRIP. SHE SAID SHE PLANNED WITH MEMBERS OF THE KNESSET ACCORDING TO HER ONLY PUBLICLY AVAILABLE SCHEDULE, WHEN SHE WAS ATTACKING JOURNALISTS MYSELF INCLUDED YESTERDAY FOR CALLING HER OUT ON TWITTER AND READ TWEETING HARASSMENT AGAINST MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA INCLUDING EDITOR OF THE FORWARD. HER STAFF WAS UNABLE TO PROVIDE ANOTHER ITINERARY AND SAID THEY WERE RELYING ON OTHER PEOPLE’S TWEETS SAYING ALLEGEDLY THERE WERE MEETINGS THAT WERE TALKED ABOUT WITH THE KNESSET AFTER THE FACT. JILLIAN: LET LISTENS WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY ABOUT US AID TO ISRAEL.>>MORE THAN $3 MILLION IN AID EVERY YEAR BUT DENYING VISITS TO DULY ELECTED MEMBERS OF CONGRESS IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH BEING AN ALLY.>>HE IS NOT EXACTLY SAYING SHE’S HINTING AT CUTTING FUNDING. BEFORE I GET YOUR OPINIONS LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS STATEMENT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE BACKING ISRAEL SAYING ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT TO PREVENT PEOPLE WHO WANT TO DESTROY IT FROM ENTERING THE COUNTRY AND DEMOCRATS POINTLESS CONGRESSIONAL INQUIRIES IN AMERICA CANNOT CHANGE THE LAWS ISRAEL HAS PASSED TO PROTECT ITSELF. WE’VE HAD A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM, FOREIGN AID FUNDING OBLIGATIONS, WE WILL PULL THIS UP ON SCREEN, IT HAS BEEN CONSISTENT THE LAST COUPLE YEARS, THAT’S JUST THE LAST 3 YEARS AS YOU CAN SEE, YOUR FINAL THOUGHTS ON WHETHER OR NOT YOU THINK FUNDING SHOULD BE CUT? SHOULD THIS BE SOMETHING THAT IS LOOKED INTO AS OMAR SUGGESTED?>>I THINK ISRAEL, $4 BILLION CERTAINLY IS A LARGE AMOUNT BUT IT HAS BEEN THAT WAY AND I DON’T THINK IT WILL CHANGE ANYTIME SOON. I DON’T THINK THIS WILL MOVE THE NEEDLE. THAT FAR I GUESS TO THE LEFT WHICH IS IN TERMS OF CUTTING AID BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE REPRESENTATIVE OMAR AND RASHIDA TLAIB, THEY REPRESENT NEW VIEWS AND VIEWS YOUNGER AMERICANS WHO ARE LOOKING AT THESE FOREIGN AID PACKAGES MORE CRITICALLY. WHY DOES ISRAEL HAVE TO GET SO MUCH IN AID? THEY ARE A STRONG ALLY IN THE REGION AND IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE AN ALLY FOR STRATEGIC PURPOSES IN OUR INTERESTS IN THE REGION BUT THESE ARE THINGS VOTERS ARE STARTING TO LOOK AT MORE CLOSELY WHEREAS BEFORE, THEY ARE ALLIES SO WE ARE GOING TO SUPPORT THEM AS MUCH AS WE NEED TO. PEOPLE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT IT NOW.>>I’M SURE THE SAME YOUNG MILLENNIALS ONE THAT ARE WORRIED ABOUT A FEW BILLION IN FOREIGN AID SPENDING FOR ONLY DEMOCRATIC ALLIES IN THE REGION. ILHAN OMAR MADE CLEAR SHE SAID IF THEY WERE AN ALLY SHE WOULD VIEW THEM AS ALLIES AND SUPPORTS THE ERADICATION OF THE INDEPENDENT JEWISH STATE IN THE REGION. HAVE GIVEN LIE TO WHAT THEY
