The Emergency Committee for Israel released an advertisement Monday titled, “Trump Loves Dictators.”
It features Donald Trump saying the world would be better off if Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi were still in power.
In a statement, the group running the ad says: “The ad will appear online and on television in primary states this week.”
In recent months, Trump has praised or apologized for Saddam Hussein, Bashar Assad, Vladimir Putin and Benito Mussolini, and previously he praised the Chinese government for carrying out the Tiananmen Square massacre.
William Kristol, Chairman of the Emergency Committee for Israel, said: “If you’re pro-Israel, you shouldn’t be pro-Trump. Apologists for dictators aren’t reliable friends of the Jewish state.”
