Trump, Pence stress support for Israel

Immigrants are surging toward the USA border because they're hearing that President Donald Trump is serious about the issue of illegal immigration and they want to do "everything they can" to come across before it's too late, Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio, said Monday.

Trump greeted the supporters of about 2,000 with the Hebrew greeting "Shabbat shalom". "You want to control your politicians, that's fine", Trump said at the time.

President Trump also pointed out republicans have not allowed anti-Semitism to take root in their party, compared to recent comments by some Democrats. The agreement was fiercely opposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has cheered as Trump re-imposed stringent new sanctions on the country that Israel regards as an existential threat.

"Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen will be leaving her position, and I would like to thank her for her service", Trump announced in a tweet.

Las Vegas casino magnate and major Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, who is on the RJC's board of directors, was seated in the front row for Trump's speech.

Trump noted it had always been a priority for Adelson and his wife, Miriam.

She added: "My Lord, forgive my people for they do not know".
