(Video) Trump uses anti-Semitism question to brag about election victory

During his joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald Trump was asked a question regarding the rise in anti-Semitism in the U.S. since he announced his campaign.

“I wonder what you would say to those across the Jewish community…who believe and feel that your administration is playing with xenophobia and maybe racist tones,” Israeli reporter Moav Vardi asked.

“I just want to say that we are very honored by the victory that we had,” is how Trump began his response. “306 electoral colleges votes. We were not supposed to crack 220.”

Later on, he promised “peace in this country” and admitted “one of the reasons we won this election is we have a very divided nation.”

Eventually, he reminded listeners that his daughter is Jewish.

At no point, did he address anti-Semitism. Watch it above.
