Julia Ioffe is a journalist who came to America with her family to escape anti-Semitism in Russia.
She blamed the Trump administration for moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem for 11 dead Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue (more on that below).
On Monday, Ioffe appeared on CNN.
She takes things a step further.
According to Julia, Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS.
Again, Ioffe says Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS.
On CNN, @juliaioffe just said "this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”

Regarding Ioffe and the Jersalem embassy comment:
And a word to my fellow American Jews: This president makes this possible. Here. Where you live. I hope the embassy move over there, where you don’t live was worth it.

* This is some sick, disgusting victim-blaming right here, which plays on classic antisemitic tropes about dual loyalties.
* The vast majority of her fellow American Jews didn’t even vote for Trump, and the shooter tweeted against Jews for holding opinions opposite to Trump https://t.co/pE6f8F2XxA

The opportunistic Left will always exploit tragedy to push vindictive, ignorant and hateful political rhetoric.

What is wrong wtih you people? Are you seriously saying the Jews had it coming? This is one of the most disgusting hot takes I've seen on this story. https://t.co/kL08wSLUJH

Did you just blame a man whose daughter is an Orthodox Jew–the same one you were fired for attacking–for murdering Jews? https://t.co/zfB6S02fYX

The worst take of an already horrific day. This take is straight from the anti-Semite masquerading as anti-Zionist playbook—“The Jews of America must pay for Israel.” Horrific. Just stop. https://t.co/GrBPOWIfSY

This is a twisted sick uninformed hateful comment. To suggest that there is any link between a white supremacist opening fire on Shabbat synagogue goers and the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem is nutso. And promotes hate. https://t.co/NiJjLnuFVO

Here’s a clip featuring Ioffe:
More on the massacre:
Reports say [Robert Bowers] barricaded himself in a room at the synagogue when police approached.
Emergency services arrived at the building at about 10:00 local time (14:00 GMT), and gunshots could be heard.
Pittsburgh’s Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich later confirmed Mr Bowers was in police custody and was being treated in hospital.
The crime scene was “horrific”, he told reporters. “One of the worst I’ve seen, and I’ve [worked] on some plane crashes. It’s very bad,” he added.
