President Donald Trump is still being criticized for his statements to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia two weeks ago, but an unlikely figure has come to his defense.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Univision chairman and billionaire Haim Saban acknowledged that he and Trump differ on some issues, but had one statement that destroyed the liberal narrative about the president.
“I disagree with the president with what appears to be a moral equivalence being drawn between the Nazis, who are shouting, ‘Kill the Jews,’ and the protesters who came to counter that statement,” Saban said, referring to Trump’s condemnation of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Then he delivered the real message.
“I do not believe that President Trump is a Nazi or anti-Semite,” he said.
After he defended Trump, the mega donor went even further by slamming Black Lives Matter as “clearly an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel group.” Saban said the organization’s official policy platform on its website refers to Israel as “an apartheid state” who is responsible for “genocide.”
While Saban is a massive Democratic donor, he criticized former President Barack Obama in 2016 when he allowed a United Nations Security Council resolution to condemn an Israeli housing project in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Saban said he was “deeply disturbed” by Obama’s actions against Israel, adding it harmed “any long-term prospects for peace” in the region.
The Univision chairman’s defense of Trump is significant, particularly given that he donated roughly $10 million to Hillary Clinton through various Democratic fundraising groups during the 2016 presidential election, and now he is defending the president.
Also, he’s actually Jewish himself, unlike so many of the critics who accuse Trump of being an anti-Semite.
Saban’s rebuke of the leftist culture may also show Democrats are growing tired of the anti-Trump media and their constant over-hyped outrage at everything the president does.
Saban may be a top donor to the Democrat Party and the Clinton machine, but his message defending Trump is loud and clear. Many are growing tired of the media’s unfair treatment of Trump when they spent years helping prop up Obama.
And thankfully, many are starting to call the media out for their double standards.
