The support from the Orthodox Jewish community comes amid reports that President Trump will sign an executive order on Wednesday to interpret Judaism as a nationality and not just a religion. This is a move that the Trump administration believes will fight what they perceive as anti-Semitism on college campuses, according to a White House official.
This executive order would allow Trump to take further steps to combat anti-Israel sentiments and BDS movements on college campuses by requiring colleges and universities to treat those movements as discriminatory in order to keep their funding.
Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and a senior White House adviser, pushed for the executive order, according to a Times report.
