Republican Jewish Coalition ‘congratulates' Donald Trump

( The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has congratulated the now presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump after both of his remaining GOP opponents, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), announced they are quitting the White House race on Wednesday.

“The Republican Jewish Coalition congratulates Donald Trump on being the presumptive Presidential nominee of the Republican Party,” RJC National Chairman David Flaum said in a statement. He then went on to criticize Trump’s presumptive opponent in the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, by saying she “is the worst possible choice for a commander in chief.”

“Secretary Clinton has proven time and again through her record and her policies that her candidacy will compromise our national security, weaken our economy and further strain our relationship with our greatest ally Israel,” Flaum said.

“Along with the Presidential race, the RJC will be working hard to hold on to our majorities in the Senate and the House. It is critical that these majorities be preserved,” and “to do this we must remember our core principles: peace through strength, unwavering support for Israel and robust American leadership at home and abroad,” he added.
