Report: Trump Says He'd End Anti-Israel Protests

By    |   Monday, 27 May 2024 11:21 AM EDT

Former president Donald Trump told donors he would end anti-Israel protests on college campuses by expelling foreign students from the U.S., The Washington Post reported.

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee in November's general election, took part in a May 14 round table with donors in New York and discussed the recent on-campus demonstrations, which he said was part of a "radical revolution."

"One thing I do is, any student that protests, I throw them out of the country. You know, there are a lot of foreign students. As soon as they hear that, they're going to behave," Trump said at the event, the Post reported.

"If you get me elected, and you should really be doing this, if you get me reelected, we're going to set that movement back 25 or 30 years."

Trump commended the New York Police Department for clearing protesters from Columbia University campus. He added that other cities needed to do the same because "it has to be stopped now."

Speaking to a group that included "98% of my Jewish friends," Trump cited pro-Israel steps taken by his administration. The achievements included moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and recognizing the Golan Heights, which Israel began occupying during the Six-Day War in 1967.

"So I did Golan Heights. You know that's worth $2 trillion, they said, that piece, if you put it in real estate terms. But it's worth more than that. It is," Trump told the donors, the Post reported.

The former president also told the donors he supports Israel's right to continue "its war on terror" against Hamas in Gaza.

Trump has said the Hamas terrorists' Oct. 7 attack on Israel would not have happened if he were president.

Less than two weeks ago, the Republican Jewish Coalition announced a commitment to raise a minimum of $5 million to help support Trump's reelection bid.

The money would be raised through donations to the grassroots group, which represents Jewish Republicans nationally, and the initiative would be coordinated through donors and from the RJC Victory Fund super PAC, the organization announced.

"When President Trump is back in the Oval Office, Israel will once again be protected, Iran will go back to being broke, terrorists will be hunted down, and the bloodshed will end," Karoline Leavitt, the campaign's national press secretary, wrote the Post in an email.
