(June 22, 2020 / JNS) The Republican Jewish Coalition launched a $50,000 ad buy in battleground states on Sunday, pushing out a video celebrating how the U.S.-Israel relationship has strengthened under U.S. President Donald Trump.
The eight-minute documentary, called “Sunrise,” praises Trump for strengthening the U.S.-Israel alliance to “a level never seen before” and for being “the most pro-Israel American president in history.”
It touts Trump’s pro-Israel achievements, including moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May 2018; recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights in March 2019; withdrawing the United States in May 2018 from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal; cutting U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority for the P.A.’s program of financially rewarding terrorists and their families; and eliminating Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani in an airstrike in Iraq earlier this year.
The RJC also released a 30-second trailer.
We’re excited to share with you the our latest production for the 2020 cycle, “Sunrise”
The documentary captures the historic relationship between the US & Israel which has been made stronger than ever by @realDonaldTrump

On Twitter, RJC executive director Matt Brooks said the $50,000 ad buy is part of a $10 million RJC campaign to try to expand support for Trump in the Jewish community.
However, despite Trump’s pro-Israel agenda, the Jewish community overwhelmingly supports the Democratic Party and is expected to do the same in supporting the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.
