The hosts at Fox News morning show Fox and Friends congratulated business tycoon Donald Trump on Monday for receiving the ‘Liberty’ Award at The Algeimener‘s ‘Jewish 100’ Gala in New York City last week.
“It was a great honor,” Trump said when he called into the show. “I’m a big fan and supporter of Israel. It’s a very important award.”
Trump accepted the award last Tuesday at The Algemeiner‘s star-studded event, which drew a crowd of 500 to the Capitale on Bowery. He was presented the award on the night by his daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism in 2009. During his acceptance speech he joked that having a Jewish daughter “wasn’t in the plan but I’m very glad it happened.”
Fox and Friends anchor Heather Nauert emceed the Gala and other honorees at the event included philanthropists Joseph and Deborah Aronow, late entertainer Joan Rivers and speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein.
