Reps. Deutch, Luria Call on White House to Condemn Anti-Semitic Website TruNews
Today, Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) and Congresswoman Elaine Luria (VA-02) sent a letter to White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney asking him to condemn the anti-Semitic comments by TruNews founder and host Rick Wiles and deny TruNews any future access to the White House.
In a video posted to the TruNews website on November 22, 2019, founder and host Rick Wiles denigrates Jews and repeats vicious anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, saying, "That's the way the Jews work. They are deceivers. They plot, they lie, they do whatever they have to do to accomplish their political agenda. This impeach Trump movement is a Jew coup. And the American people better wake up to it really fast.”
As the Members state in the letter, "An extremist website that frequently attacks Jews and other minorities has no place in the White House. President Trump and other officials in this Administration should publicly condemn these anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and make clear that anti-Semitism will not be tolerated by this White House, including from its supporters."
