Candace Owens: ‘Not a single elected Democrat is here to celebrate this historic event in Jerusalem’

Candace Owens may not be content with breaking down the barriers that keep black Americans in the Democratic Party, as seen in a tweet that should open the eyes of Jewish Americans.

On the historic day that President Donald Trump fulfilled his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Trump “for having the courage to keep your promises.”

Owens, who’s in Israel for the momentous occasion, took to Twitter to note that not a single elected Democrat was present

“Amazingly, not a single elected Democrat is here to celebrate this historic event in Jerusalem, a bonafide signal that they do not stand with Israel. This snub will not soon be forgotten—not in America or abroad,” Owens tweeted.

Charlie Kirk, the founder and executive director of Turning Point USA — seen in the photo above standing next to Owen — offered more details on who was on hand,while echoing the sentiment that Democrats do not stand with Israel.

“At the dedication ceremony for the US embassy here in Jerusalem 14 congressmen, 4 senators, and one governor are here Zero democrats. Zero,” Kirk tweeted. “Democrats do not stand with Israel. They have turned their back on our closest ally in the Middle East.”

The question is, will the revelation have an impact on Jewish American voters, who traditionally vote overwhelmingly Democrat?

Here’s a sampling of reactions to the somewhat surprising observation from Twitter:
