Trump: Jewish leaders forgot I was the best
The former US president accuses Jewish leaders, again, of disloyalty.
Former President Donald Trump has accused Jewish leaders of a lack of "loyalty" amid the ongoing series of arguments regarding his dinner with Holocaust-denier Nick Fuentes.
“How quickly Jewish Leaders forgot that I was the best, by far, President for 'Israel',” Trump said in a post on Truth Social. “They should be ashamed of themselves. This lack of loyalty to their greatest friends and allies is why large numbers in Congress, and so many others, have stopped giving support to 'Israel'.”
Following his dinner, Trump faced a wave of criticism after his Mar-A-Lago dinner, reportedly also dining with Kanye West who brought Fuentes with him, among other guests.

Trump claimed that he was not aware of Fuentes' views for him to come to his dinner event.
“I had never heard of the man — I had no idea what his views were, and they weren’t expressed at the table in our very quick dinner, or it wouldn’t have been accepted,” he said.
As for Trump's relationship with Kanye, the former president received criticism, especially since Kanye recently revealed his liking toward Adolf Hitler and Nazis, posting a swastika on Twitter shortly after.
The former president then criticized American Jews for not recognizing how amazing of a president he was for being supportive of "Israel."

“No President has done more for 'Israel' than I have. Somewhat surprisingly, however, our wonderful Evangelicals are far more appreciative of this than the people of the Jewish faith, especially those living in the US,” Trump said.
“Those living in 'Israel', though, are a different story – Highest approval rating in the World, could easily be P.M.! U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in 'Israel' – Before it is too late!” he added.
Far-right Germans took Trump supporters in Capitol attack as model
On Wednesday, German news outlet Der Spiegel reported that the German extremists who attempted to storm the Bundestag earlier were taking Trump supporters as models when they carried out an attack on the US Capitol on January 6.
Using more than 3,000 security and law enforcement personnel, Germany arrested overnight 25 people suspected of plotting to overthrow the government.
Of the 25 arrests, two were overseas in Italy and Austria. A manhunt for another 27 people is currently underway, according to the report.
Neo-Nazis, conspiracy theorists, and gun enthusiasts who disagree with the validity of the contemporary German republic make up the Reichsbuerger movement.
According to Der Spiegel, the conspirators were inspired by the Reichsburger (Citizens of the Reich); a group of conspiracy theorists who believe the state is an artificial construct that illegitimately replaced the Deutsche Reich of the Nazi period.
They are also influenced by the US radical community QAnon which believes the 2020 presidential elections were rigged and that Trump was allegedly leading a war on the "global pedophile lobby."
