J Street denounces Trump as ‘racist, unfit to be president’

Dovish Israel lobby J Street, which says it has taken pains to not endorse any presidential candidate since its founding in 2008, releases a statement deploring Donald Trump and saying his “racist and hateful campaign [is] an affront to Jewish values.”

“Nothing in the campaign to date gives us any confidence that Donald Trump, as Commander-in-Chief, would make rational and principled judgments on the foreign policy issues of consequence to us or that he would act in accordance with the core principles that define this country as a democracy,” a statement from the group reads.

“Taken together, these factors in our view render Donald Trump unfit to be President of the United States. Trump and his campaign, driven by racism and hate, are beyond the bounds of acceptability for the vast majority of Jewish Americans.”
