Trump and anti-Semitism

The answer that Trump gave about anti-Semitism was not surprising.  Trump has nurtured an anti-Semitic white supremacist movement among his base (I am not saying that all his base is racist or anti-Semitic as lazy Democrats would argue--there are working people who were attracted to Trump by virtue of their betrayal at the hands of the Corporate Democratic Party).  But he is also too narcissistic and self-absorbed to ever feel empathy: this is a man who thinks that his treatment at the hands of the New York Times is a worse injustice than the Holocaust itself. But Israel and American Zionists are doing it again: they are covering up for an anti-Semite only because he is good to Israeli occupation (which has been the case since the days of the crude and simpleton anti-Semite, Harry Truman).  Hell, American Zionists and Israel were able to forgive and cover up to this very day the rabid anti-Semitism of Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon can easily be counted among the history's worst anti-Semite, among Henry Ford and David Irving.  For this reason, it is important that the fight against anti-Semitism be made a universal humanitarian cause and be wrestled away from the hands of Zionists who barter the cause of combatting anti-Semitism for money and arms for Israel.
