Trump Responds To Report That Anti-Israel Campus Protests Are Funded By Biden Donors
NEW YORK, NEW YORK - MAY 6: Former U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media at his trial for allegedly covering up hush money payments at Manhattan Criminal Court on May 6, 2024 in New York City. Trump was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records last year, which prosecutors say was an effort to hide a potential sex scandal, both before and after the 2016 presidential election. Trump is the first former U.S. president to face trial on criminal charges.

Former President Donald Trump said Monday that he wasn’t surprised that the anti-Israel protests that have broken out across the country have been in part funded by donors to President Joe Biden. 

Trump briefly spoke about the protests outside the courtroom for his New York criminal trial, commenting on a POLITICO report released on Sunday indicating that leftist donors were providing financial support to activist groups like Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow. The donors include figures like George Soros, Bill and Melinda Gates, David Rockefeller Jr., and the Pritzker family. 

“It also came out that the protesters, many of the protesters, are backed by Biden’s donors,” Trump said. “OK, are you listening Israel? I hope you’re listening Israel. I hope you’re getting smart. But they are backed by Biden’s donors, that’s where the money’s coming from. And I’m not surprised at all.”

Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow, responsible for organizing protests at universities such as Columbia, are both supported by the Tides Foundation, which is funded by Soros and Gates. Tides also receives money from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, directed by a board that includes David Rockefeller Jr. Nick Pritzker, a wealthy entrepreneur and heir to the Hyatt Hotel empire, and his wife Susan are also donors to Tides.

The former president also commented on news that Columbia University would be canceling its main commencement ceremony, saying, “that shouldn’t happen.” 

On Sunday, Trump said that Biden was the reason for the unrest that has rocked American campuses the last several weeks.


“The primary reason for all of these terrible protests is Crooked Joe Biden. He is unable to talk, unable to reason, unable to put two simple sentences together, unable to even climb 3 steps to a helicopter, or the main stairs to Air Force One. In other words, his mind and body are shot,” he posted on Truth Social. 

“Now we have the protests, and Crooked Joe Biden doesn’t know what to do — Next will be World War Three, and everything else! We are a Nation in Serious Decline, a Failing Nation, but we will not be a Failing Nation much longer,” Trump added. “Four years ago we were a GREAT NATION, AND WE WILL SOON BE A GREAT NATION AGAIN!!! MAGA2024.”
