U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday morning a quote from Elizabeth Pipko, the millennial spokesperson for the Jexodus movement — urging Jews to leave the Democratic Party.

Trump tweeted: “‘Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts [sic] & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.’ Elizabeth Pipko, Jexodus.”

Trump quoted Pipko, adding in a typo, from her appearance on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning.

Pipko is a model and former figure skater, who joined the movement in early March and told right-wing activist Ezra Levant that when “she began volunteering for Donald Trump's campaign, she felt pressured to keep it a secret from others in her industry.”

Trump’s tweet comes days after Trump reportedly told Republican donors at an RNC conference that "the Democrats hate Jewish people." Trump has been a vocal critic of Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar and has been touting allegations that she is anti-Semitic for her recent criticism regarding Israel.

Jexodus is reportedly the brainchild of Jeff Ballabon, a prominent fixture in Republican Jewish circles, who last week called Omar "filth" during an interview on Fox News.
