Pence: Sanders Would be the 'Most Anti-Israel President in History'
Vice President Mike Pence slammed Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at the AIPAC Policy Conference on Mon. 2 March 2020. Pence, who addressed the crowd said, “One of the leading candidates Bernie Sanders smeared Israel at last week’s debate and not a single candidate on that stage stood up to challenge him. But I’ll promise you we will always call out those who try to cloak their animus toward Israel inside a phony mantle of friendship.” Sanders recently accused PM Netanyahu of being a “reactionary racist” and has called Israel’s government “racist” in the past. He said recently that he would consider moving the USA embassy back to Tel Aviv. Pence made sure to emphasize President, Donald Trump's accomplishments when it comes to the USA's alliance with Israel. At the same time, he said Sanders, despite being Jewish, would be a president who doesn’t side with Israel. “The most pro-Israel president in history must not be replaced by one who would be the most anti-Israel president in the history of this nation,” Pence said to a cheering crowd. “That’s why we need four more years of President Trump in the White House.” (VFI News)
