"That's a question you should ask Democrats".
Last Friday, Trump called Democrats "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish" after the House of Representatives passed a resolution denouncing antisemitism after three days of intense arguments.
"The President has been an unwavering and committed ally to Israel and the Jewish people", said Sanders, neglecting Trump's praise for the "very fine people" who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia with torches while chanting "Jews will not replace us". We know he's lied at least twice in that hearing.
According to Axios, citing three unnamed sources who attended the meeting, Trump also launched an assault on the Democrats, alleging that the party "hates Jewish people". "Isn't that kind of rhetoric just sort of beneath everybody?"
"The president has laid out clearly his position on this matter", she replied.
Previously, Omar said that "Israel has hypnotized the world" and supported the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest, and the Sanctions movement. Again Sanders tried to sidestep the question, saying she wasn't going to comment on "a potentially leaked item" and continuing to insist Democrats are anti-Semitic.
Acosta then asked if it "drags down the rhetoric of a debate" when someone says something that is "patently untrue". Instead, she told reporters that Acosta's involvement in a 2007 plea deal with alleged serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is "currently under review".

Today's big tech companies have too much power - too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy. She used the flap to warn that it was unsafe for cyberspace to by "dominated by a single censor".
Asked about the check Trump signed to Cohen in August 2017, Sanders said: "I'm not aware of those specific, uh, checks".
Sanders fired back, "That's not at all what the president was stating".
Commenting on the press briefing earlier today, Acosta noted that "there are so many hard questions for this White House to answer".
"Democrats don't hate Jewish people, that's just silly", Acosta said.
Trying to explain why the resolution was amended from its original version that only condemned anti-Semitism, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on March 7 that a new version of the resolution was expanded to "speak out against anti-Semitism, anti-Islamophobia, anti-white supremacy and all the forms that it takes".
Last year, Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a November 7 press conference.
