  • Eli Epstein says:

    @Jaketurx for President!!

  • Yehuda says:

    Quite possibly. But consider the fact that the way the question was frased misled him.

  • Alan says:

    I agree with yehuda, the question was great but not phrased properly, perhaps something like this would have garnered a better response:
    Mr. President we know that you are committed to fighting radical islamic terror at home and abroad, of recent there have been many jewish american institutions that have been targeted by threats, how will you address these threats to american institutions that feel threatened?

  • Amil Zola says:

    Anti semitic attacks are on the rise and America needs an answer from it’s president. Why is he so cosy with white nationalists and supremicists?

  • sterling guy says:

    I applaud Jake for being respectful and sat down the second he was told to!

  • command post says:

    I dont know how Trump misundersttod – Turx was gonna ask him what the Governtment plans to do to fighht racism and anti-semitic incidents and Trump thought he was bring charged with being anti-semitic. It was not an insulting question !!

  • Jonnysix pack says:

    Why is my stuff not getting on

  • Jonnysix pack says:

    Why can’t my point of view be there let the people see it

  • Right! says:

    I can see how President Trump misunderstood the question. I didn’t understand it either!

  • Jonnysix pack says:

    (moderated) we should all email Jared how much we appreciate his desire to protect us all from terror anything more then Obama ever did and for sure more then hilliary more then 90% of Lakewood voted for trump we should make sure that he knows that …

  • Me myself & I says:

    Yehuda-frased? Now we know why Trump misunderstood the question. I hear he doesn’t excel in spelling either. (Phrased, btw)

  • JustWondering says:

    Although antisemetism in Europe is on the rise. There is no evidence that ant-semetism in America is on the rise.

    The WJC has already called out the ADL as crying wolf is harmful.

  • raintree says:

    Sir, you didn’t phrase anything wrong. He owes you an apology. Watched it life. The arrogance of Trump is unbelievable.

  • raintree says:

    Sorry, watched if live not “life” (typo)

  • The professor says:

    Anti Semitic attacks are on the rise in america. There have been nearly 50 isolated incidents of anti Semitic attacks on synagogues and Jewish centers across the country via bomb threats and anti semetic graffiti. Just yesterday, the FBI arrested a guy in South Carolina whom was about to go and shoot up the local synagogue. The threat is real and until trump denounces anti semtism to his followers, nothing will change.

  • J says:

    Trump will never admit that anti-semetic attacks are on the rise because a large voting bloc for Trump are white supremacists — the ones commiting these acts. These are amongst his largest supporters and most loyal supporters and he does not want to lose them.

  • raintree says:

    To the professor – you are 100% right. How he treated Mr. Turx and the African American reporter is beyond belief. He’s a disgrace.

  • watchman says:

    The question was right on target, the problem is that Trump brain is not working and istead of answering how to solve the problem his scrambled brian thought it was an attack on him. This POTUS is very sick
