Speaking at a Republican Jewish Coalition gathering in Las Vegas, Trump said he made the decision during a discussion with his top Middle East peace advisers, including the USA ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

President Donald Trump is thanking members of the Republican Jewish Coalition for backing him in 2016 and he says they have an important role to play in his re-election campaign in 2020. "I'll put a bullet in her (expletive) skull".

She accused Jewish Americans of having a "dual loyalty" to both the USA and Israel and said that support for the Jewish state was "all about the benjamins".

Trump also stressed his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and move the United States embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Patrick W. Carlineo, the NY man charged with threatening to kill Rep. Omar, asked one of her staff members if she works "for the Muslim Brotherhood", according to a criminal complaint released Saturday by federal prosecutors in the Western District of NY.

"Some of the roughest people you've ever seen, people that look like they should be fighting for the UFC", he said, referencing the mixed martial arts promotion company.

"I know that the Republican Jewish Coalition will help lead our party to another historic victory", Trump said.

Launched in January, the Trump administration's policy to send asylum seekers back to Mexico while their cases were being processed marked an unprecedented change to the USA asylum system, government officials and asylum experts said, since families seeking asylum typically had been released in the USA with notices to appear in court.

Trump then adopted a deep voice, saying, "I am very fearful for my life, I am very anxious that I will be accosted if I'm sent back home" to impersonate a hypothetical migrant.

"Trump's presidency has only solidified the fact that the Democratic Party has been - and will remain - the political home of the American Jewish electorate", JDCA Executive Director Halie Soifer said in a statement.

Nielsen had grown increasingly frustrated by what she saw as a lack of support from other departments and increased meddling by Trump aides on hard immigration issues, according to three people familiar with details of her resignation.

Trump met privately with Adelson before speaking, according to an official. Dozens of men and several women wore red yarmulkes with "Trump" in white that were distributed at the event.

But overall, Trump received an enthusiastic reception from the crowd. The ACLU and other groups that are suing say that law does not apply to asylum seekers who cross the border illegally or arrive at a border crossing without proper documents.

"The president is not a white supremacist", Mulvaney said in an interview with Fox News Sunday, responding to critics who accused Trump of echoing the gunman's rhetoric in comments from the Oval Office just hours after the massacre, the Washington Post said.
