LIVE: Donald Trump Speaks at AIPAC

Trump to tackle foreign policy

All three remaining Republican presidential candidates are slated to speak at AIPAC’s annual conference this evening, followed by Speaker Paul Ryan.

Donald Trump is scheduled to speak first, beginning at 5:00 PM EST. However, it appears everything is out of order. Kasich and Speaker Ryan have spoken, still awaiting Cruz and Trump. Stay tuned!

Naturally, Code Pink is ready:

My prediction, there will be more anti-Israel protests than anti-Trump, Cruz, and Kasich combined. 🙁

So both sides are anti-Israel. Whoopie. 🙁

So which protest group has the best papier-mâché puppets this time?

Wow, he and his team put a lot of work into that speech. Very Presidential. He was very serious with very few of the ad libs he usually does. The crowd seemed receptive, and I didn’t see empty seats, so any walkout attempt that happened wasn’t successful.

I missed the start, but what I got:

1. He hates the Iran deal
2. He doesn’t think any. Attempt by the UN to Impose peace is legitimate, and he doesn’t have a high opinion of the UN
3. He will move the Embassy to Jerusalem
4. Ivanka is due either today or tomorrow

    “1. He hates the Iran deal”

    Yah, so much he’s promised to “honor it”.

    Cruz has promised to obviate it.

      I know it doesn’t suit your meme, Rags, but these are his exact words, and it was the last pt. he made, which I think is a realistic way of dealing with Obama’s catastrophic deal. I take restructuring seriously, considering that Iran is already getting the money…

      “Third, at the very least, we must hold Iran accountable by restructuring the terms of the previous deal.”

      Washington (CNN)As Republican presidential candidates vow to tear up the Iran deal — at least five of them say they’ll do it on their first day in office — Republican rivals Donald Trump and Jeb Bush have been using more nuanced rhetoric.

        Lady Penguin in reply to Ragspierre. | March 22, 2016 at 9:56 am

        Yes, I should have included his first two points about the Iranian “deal” – but they did include stopping the nuclear aspect, and he pointed out quite strongly the serious threat Iran represents to Israel and the region. So I don’t think he is understating the threat.

        That said, I’m just curious, what is the point of all the Donald Trump negative remarks directed towards those of us who say they’ll vote for him if he is the nominee. I voted for Cruz in the primary, but the endgame seems to be that there must be hating on any folks who defend Trump in any respect, and that’s a puzzle that I just can’t figure out.

          Oh, and my question about the endgame and negativity directed towards any Trump supporter or defender isn’t meant strictly towards you, Rags, but to others as well who have embraced the #NeverTrump tirade.

          Is it a matter of we’re to be hated because we don’t hate like the #NeverTrump folks?

          Ragspierre in reply to Lady Penguin. | March 22, 2016 at 11:12 am

          What “negative remarks” have I directed to you?

          I certainly DO direct some “negative remarks” to T-rump cultists here, who routinely lie in comments. Those people are a distinct set, and not one that I think includes you.

Palestinians raise their children to honor the murderers of Jews.

Ding, ding, ding! Yep – he gets it.

    Meanwhile, every single day, you have rampant incitement and children being taught to hate Israel and hate the Jews. When you live in a society where the firefighters are the hero’s little kids want to be firefighters.

    When you live in a society where athletes and movie stars are heroes, little kids want to be athletes and movie stars. In Palestinian society, the heroes are those who murder Jews – we can’t let this continue. You cannot achieve peace if terrorists are treated as martyrs. Glorifying terrorists is a tremendous barrier to peace.

    In Palestinian textbooks and mosques, you’ve got a culture of hatred that has been fermenting there for years, and if we want to achieve peace, they’ve got to end this indoctrination of hatred. There is no moral equivalency. Israel does not name public squares after terrorists. Israel does not pay its children to stab random Palestinians.

    Lady Penguin in reply to labrat. | March 22, 2016 at 1:58 am

    And I have to ask why anyone would down vote “labrats” 2 comments? Considering that they are actual facts of what we know to be true regarding the treatment of Israel by the Palestinians, and we know they encourage the killing of Jews and they raise their children to hate, hate, hate.

    Anyone of our candidates could have made those same statements of fact, so are the down votes because Trump said them, or anti-Semitism? IMO, attacks and terrorism directed towards killing the Jewish people is anti-Semitism. And the same would be true (and is) regarding Christians.

      LP, the TDS people would down vote god if he mentioned Trump in anything but a negative light.

      I take the downvotes as a badge of honor. The more the better.

No question about it. Of all the speeches Trump’s is the one that they will remember and the one all the media is talking about.

I just read the transcript, I wasn’t home to hear the reaction of the audience, holy smokes, I view it as one of his best speeches thus far. He was thoughtful, serious, and focused. I’m very much on the fence about Trump, I typically only vote economic issues, so I was leaning toward him. His name-calling has been a real put-off for me. But this speech? Thrilled to hear it!

    The “name calling” was necessary to clear the field. Now that the candidates, and hopefully the press, have left the playground, it’s back to class in order to learn about issues and positions.

    Lady Penguin in reply to herm2416. | March 22, 2016 at 2:02 am

    It’s on the web in video if you get a chance to watch. First I had read the transcript, but hubby and I viewed the speech and the actual delivery had more ad lib remarks. The vid also shows the flavor and ambience of the very warm reception he got from the audience. Several standing ovations, and applause throughout.

Why are we giving aid to Palestinians again?

Off topic, black man attends Trump rally, posts his reaction. Shock! Media makes up stuff to fit their agenda.

Cruz was much better. He didn’t come in and talk about his poll numbers and how he knows some Jewish people. Cruz came in with some Jewish history, how it relates to present day and ended with some actual Hebrew.
