The Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel, said on Thursday the absence of Democratic presidential candidates at The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) annual policy conference at the beginning of this week, the party shows the “anti-Israel.”

“One of the things that is so crazy Nancy Pelosi is now the moderates in the democratic party. The San Francisco liberal is now the sanest member in your group,” McDaniel said on Fox & Friends.

In the case of AIPAC, the speaker of the house of representatives Pelosi, D-Calif, said that Israel has the support of both parties, find the distance that the democratic party is any hint that it was anti-Semitic after the freshman legislator Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., publicly, Israel and its leadership criticized.


“The support for Israel remains firm and bipartisan,” Pelosi said, when it comes to the pro-Israel Lobby group’s annual policy conference in Washington. “Aid for Israel is important, because if you need to order the America’ s security, you care about the security of Israel.”

Pelosi stressed that no one should be allowed to Israel, “adding a wedge issue,” “anti-Semitic, anti-American.”

Pelosi’s remarks undercut Omar, a Somali-American and one of two Muslim women in the Congress, which has the detected a wave, the game room took over again, anti-Semitic comments.


The democratic presidential candidates Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, former Rep. Beto O’rourke and others at the annual AIPAC policy conference, a step that the call to coincide with a well-to-do progressive advocacy group, to boycott the event. a group spent approximately $3.5 million in the 2018 midterm elections called the 2020 Democratic candidates to skip the conference, although in the past, all the presidential-regarded candidate who will stop the AIPAC meeting, as a crucial campaign.

“It is very worrying that the 2020 Democrats, none of the presidential candidates showed up to AIPAC,” McDaniel said on Thursday. “AIPAC is bipartisan, it is nonpartisan, and do not prefer one party or the other. You will not even appear. The Democrat party is now anti-Israel.”

“The President has shown that he is a President who stands with Israel every step of the way,” McDaniel. She brought several examples, including the signing of the order in this week for the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan heights and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

“Here the concern is. If you allow these anti-Israel, anti-Semitism seep into your party, (if) you do not topple it from the second that it comes, this is dangerous for our country,” said McDaniel. “The democratic party will now say” can peacefully coexist in our party.'”

Josh Orton, a consultant from Sanders, told the media that the leading candidate for the Democrats to participate, because “he is concerned about the platform AIPAC offers for executives who have expressed bigotry, and against a two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Other candidates provided no explanation for their decisions not to participate in the conference. Gillibrand and Harris had, however, represent meetings with member groups AIPAC on Capitol Hill. Harris even posted on Twitter a picture of himself standing with AIPAC leaders.

The tweet said that she met with California AIPAC leaders “to discuss the need for a strong U.S.-Israel Alliance, Israel’s right to defend itself, and my commitment to the fight against anti-Semitism in our country and around the world.”

The tweet led to some negative comments on the social media platform.

McDaniel also talked to pan about President Trump, the health care on Fox & Friends Thursday.


The trump administration on Monday, a Federal appeals court said that the entire Affordable Care Act must be abolished, the revival of the struggle for the repeal and replace it with something else, and setting a path for a collision between a President Trump and the 2020 Democratic candidates embrace “Medicare for All” system.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Capitol Hill Wednesday, “The President wants to go back to, to repeal and replace it. Our Days. The Republicans here in the Senate is not trying always and always and always again, to pick up and replace, you could, because they are not a substitute.”

“I think the President is just the Democrats, the American people, “Medicare say for all, Medicare for all”, what it really is, is a government takeover of their health care,” McDaniel said on Fox & Friends in response. “The President will say, there are things to do we have to do is to lower health care costs. We know that ObamaCare is broken, the Democrat solution is a government takeover. The President will say, ‘we will reduce the price of prescription drugs, we make sure that we restore the doctor-patient relationship.’ These are the things that the American people want, which is to reduce the cost of health care, and he is focused on.”

Justice Department lawyers submitted a letter to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans to demand, in order to effectively strike the ACA in its entirety, in accordance with the ground-breaking ruling from a Federal judge in Texas last year.

The most recent attempt to completely invalidate the law prove to Democrats in the Congress, right after you warned, during the midterm elections last year, that the Republicans are trying to repeal the law, including the protections for people with pre-existing conditions, while the Republicans denied such plans.

McDaniel, the President called a “courageous leader” and said that he recognizes that the American people are currently concerned about the health care. “Deductibles are still very high, the insurance rates are still high,” she said.


“The President is absolutely sure that we have a pre-existing condition coverage,” McDaniel continued. “The Democrats know that it is broken, that is why you say, ‘Medicare for all”. This is not the solution.”
