Dr. Robert Jeffress, appearing on the Todd Starnes Show, praised President Trump for signing an executive order designed to cut off aid to universities that tolerate anti-Semitism.
“This is our message to universities: If you want to accept the tremendous amount of federal dollars that you get every year, you must reject anti-Semitism,” Trump said when he signed the executive order.
Dr. Jeffress said the president is trying to bring healing to the nation by signing the historic order. But critics say it’s a crackdown on free speech. Listen above to the entire interview.
“Universities have become hotbeds of anti-Semitism,” Jeffress said on the Todd Starnes Show. “This executive order isn’t an effort to control people’s speech. It’s saying under Title XI six that the government is not going to keep shoveling money to universities that promote this very dangerous belief.”
Jeffress said anti-Semitism is not just wrong, but it’s also evil.
“When people speak against Israel they are speaking against the people God calls the apple of His own eye,” the pastor said.
He commended President Trump for being on the right side of history and the right side of God when it comes to Israel.
“One reason God has blessed America is because we have stood with our only true ally in the Middle East – which is Israel,” Jeffress said.
It’s too bad President Trump can’t issue an executive order addressing the anti-Semitism within the Democrat party.
