Questioned About Anti-Semitism, Trump Brags About Election Victory

President Donald Trump responded Wednesday to a question about increased anti-Semitic incidents after his election by bragging about his victory in the Electoral College and citing his Jewish relatives.

"Well, I just want to say that we are very honored by the victory that we had," Trump told a reporter who asked him to respond to Jewish constituents who are concerned about xenophobic and racist undercurrents in his administration.

"306 Electoral College votes, we were not supposed to crack 220, you know that, right?" said during a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "There was no way to 221. But then they said there's no way to 270."

Trump said that "there's tremendous enthusiasm" for his administration's agenda, which the President described as stopping "a lot of bad things."

Not only did he just toss out the two state solution like it was nothing, he took yet another victory lap during the press conference.

1. Maybe

Bibi should ask Bannon a question or two about anti-semitism.

2. I'd pay to see that conversation.

If the WH made it pay-per-view we could offset some of the added expenses from Melania being in NY and Trump running to Mar-a-Lago to golf every weekend.

5. To be fair...

It is the winter white house! Remember when Teddy Roosevelt built Mar-A-Lago so the president didn't have to deal with snow?

4. Trump has no idea what the two state solution is...

He probably just thinks that it would prevent real estate developers from building new buildings.
