The Republican Jewish Coalition on Wednesday backed President Donald Trump in his attacks of Jews who vote for Democrats, saying on Twitter that the president was "pointing out the obvious."

"We take the President seriously, not literally," the coalition, headed by Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, said in one tweet. "President Trump is pointing out the obvious: for those who care about Israel, the position of many elected Democrats has become anti-Israel."

The group then referenced U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who have been banned from Israel for supporting boycotts over the Jewish state's treatment of Palestinians.

"When Tlaib and Omar talk loyalty, they're questioning American Jews' loyalty to the United States," the coalition said in another post. "President Trump is talking about caring about the survival of the Jewish state."

President Trump said Tuesday that Jews who voted Democratic were ignorant or disloyal.

"Any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty," the president told reporters in the Oval Office with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.
