President Donald Trump declared Friday that the Democratic Party had become "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish," adding that a recent Democrat-led House vote condemning hate was "disgraceful." What are the details? Trump addressed reporters Friday at the White House and offered remarks about a Thursday House vote on a resolution condemning hate. The resolution passed 407 to 23. The resolution, however, did not specifically call out the anti-Semitic remarks made by freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) that prompted the vote in the first place. Omar's colleagues — both Democratic and Republican — accused her of making repeated anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks about the purported sway Jewish people have over Congress.

President Donald Trump has publicly contradicted Michael Cohen's sworn testimony to Congress, saying that his former lawyer had asked for both a pardon and a job in the White House and had been denied both. What did Cohen claim? During Cohen's Feb. 27 hearing before the House Oversight Committee, Rep.

President Donald Trump said Thursday that he believes North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un had no knowledge of the "bad things" that happened to American Otto Warmbier, who sustained incapacitating brain damage as a prisoner in the country that led to his death. What's the background? North Korean authorities detained Warmbier in 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster while visiting the country as a college student. He was convicted of crimes against the regime but was returned to his parents in a comatose state the next year. Warmbier died within days of arriving home to Ohio. For his first State of the Union address in January 2018, Trump invited Warmbier's parents to attend and recognized them as "powerful witnesses" to the horrors of North Korea. Before introducing the Warmbiers, the president said, "We need only to look at the depraved character of the North Korean regime to understand the nature of the nuclear threat it could pose to America and our allies."
