With Donald Trump set to enter the White House in January, American Jews should adopt a “constructive and collaborative” approach in the fight against antisemitism, the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner said in an interview with the Jewish Broadcasting Service this week.

Speaking with Mark S. Golub — host of the “In The News” program, Dovid Efune recommended that the incoming Trump administration formulate initiatives to stem the types of hatred — including antisemitism — that popped up at times, on both the right and the left, during the heated presidential campaign season.

“An initiative together with Twitter would be a fantastic idea…to block users who are tweeting aggressively, harassing Jewish journalists,” Efune said.

    shoulda also done this after Barry Hussein’s victory.

  • As long as the U.S. Constitution is in effect, the U.S. Jewish Community thrives. Stamping out Jew-hatred is a monumental task that must be part of the incoming Trump administration. President-elect Trump should be given consideration, as he forms his administration, and leads the nation. And if anyone thinks being U.S. President is an easy job, observe the wrinkles and gray hair on the 44th President.

  • Intelligent approach!
