President Trump made a statement on Tuesday in which he indicated for the second time that he strongly believes that the current wave of anti-Semitic incidents could be false flags that are perpetrated by the left or by the Jews in a bid to make his administration look terrible. Mr. Trump was addressing a gathering of State Attorney Generals from all over the country. Among the crowd was Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro who made a statement telling the reporters in a conference call that Trump suggested that the attacks could reflect something other than anti-Semitism.
There has been a wave of suggestions on the right-wing conspiracy theory websites claiming that the attacks are false flags that are meant to perpetuate the impression that they were being committed by President Trump’s supporters. The same notion is being pushed by white supremacist David Duke on his Twitter account. A similar suggestion was tweeted on Tuesday by a Trump supporter and an informal adviser known as Anthony Scaramucci.
Anthony Scaramucci tweeted saying that it’s not yet clear who the #JCC offenders are, adding that people should not forget the efforts that Democrats are putting in to incite violence at Trump’s rallies.
Speaking at a press conference on the 16th of February, President Trump made a suggestion that pointed out to the false flag conspiracy that was being perpetrated by his opponents in a bid to reinforce claims that his election as President was driving anti-Semitism and racism.
Trump’s comments made many people curious, Shapiro made a statement in a teleconference that Trump had promised to expound more during his address to Congress on Tuesday night. The Attorney General also emphasized that he was not certain of what exactly President Trump implied when he used the word ‘reverse’, adding that he didn’t get why Trump said that.
