WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement condemning Senator Chuck Schumer’s decision to allow Senator Bernie Sanders to host Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s antisemitic Nakba, translated to “Israel Catastrophe,” event at the U.S. Capitol and giving their endorsement to the idea that Israel should not exist.
Senator Rick Scott said, “Chuck Schumer’s decision to allow Bernie Sanders to host Rashida Tlaib’s hateful, antisemitic event in the HELP Committee room is disgusting. The Left is showing Americans very clearly that they do not care about Israel. It is a truly sad day for our country when Democrats so blatantly turn their backs on Jewish Americans by uniting around an antisemite who not only spreads hate but actively uses her position as a member of Congress to advance an ugly agenda with the purpose of degrading our special relationship and strong alliance with Israel. Every Democrat must condemn Chuck Schumer’s decision to be complicit in spreading antisemitic hate. We will not forget or forgive this disgraceful bigotry.”
