In August 2019, Samantha wrote an article for CNN digital where she alleged that Trump has used Israel for political points, and there may be consequences.
“Trump has been the beneficiary of some previously unthinkable campaign support and he recently showed just how far he is willing to go to accept foreign help when it comes to his personal political battles.
In his latest move to demonize Democratic congresswomen of color, Trump tweeted on Thursday, “It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds.” Israel’s deputy foreign minister then announced Israel was banning the two congresswomen from coming into the country. (The following day, Israel said it would allow Tlaib to visit her elderly grandmother in the West Bank after Tlaib requested entrance, promising to “respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel” during her trip.
