Netanyahu is openly interfering in the 2020 presidential election by helping Trump spread his racism with his ban of Reps. Tlaib and Omar from visiting Israel.
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. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

The Ban Is Netanyahu Meddling In The US Election To Help Trump
Trump wants to run his reelection campaign against un-American non-white “socialists,” like Tlaib and Omar. The problem is that if Joe Biden wins the Democratic nomination, he is none of those things, so in steps Netanyahu to help Trump whip up the flames of racism with a healthy side dish of authoritarianism and more than a dash of sexism against two Democratic lawmakers that Trump has demonized.
Since when is criticism a justified basis for banning foreign lawmakers from visiting an occupied territory?
Let’s call it what it is. Netanyahu is trying to do his part to get his crime buddy reelected to a second term.
Netanyahu is facing bribery and fraud charges in Israel. He desperately doesn’t want a Democrat back in the White House, and his interference is just the beginning of the meddling of true and would-be authoritarians from around the world to help Trump.
