Israel no longer owns Congress

In a recent interview, Donald Trump said:
The biggest change I’ve seen in Congress, Israel literally owned Congress –you understand that?– ten years ago, fifteen years ago.

And it was so powerful. It was so powerful. And today, it is almost the opposite.

You have, between AOC and Omar and these people that hate Israel with a passion, they’re controlling Congress. Israel is not a force in Congress anymore!

It’s amazing. I’ve never seen such a change. And we’re not talking about over a very long period of time, I think you know exactly what I’m saying. They had such power. Israel had such power, and rightfully, over Congress. And now it doesn’t!

It’s incredible, actually.

A Jewish publication adds:
The claim that Israel controls Congress has historically been treated as an antisemitic slander by antisemitism watchdogs. Omar herself got into trouble and apologized in 2019 when she suggested that Israel and the pro-Israel lobby purchases sympathy in Congress. ...

Trump suggested that he did not have a problem with the notion that Israel had once controlled Congress,

So who owns Congress now?
