Yosef used the Hebrew word 'kushi, ' which although it was used in the Bible is now considered a derogatory term for black people. "As we have seen from the protests of the last month and even today, those provoking violence are part of the problem and not part of the solution", he said from behind a podium. Let's say you know!

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who represents Israel's Sephardic Jews of Middle Eastern and North African descent reportedly blessed the couple before they attended the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem Monday, which sparked criticism worldwide.

And for anyone who thought that Ivanka would be an asset to the American people, Ward says that they're wrong because she is running her own agenda to promote her brand.

The Anti-Defamation League said that the remarks were "utterly unacceptable", but Yosef's office defended the remarks by stating he was "merely citing the Talmud", which is a set of Jewish laws which states that the same blessing is recited upon seeing an elephant, a monkey or an ape.

Ward also said during that interview that she was spending half her time in Washington DC looking at the "commercialization of the White House" and what she described has "horrifying kleptocracy".

President Donald Trump , has infuriated Palestinians, who view the eastern part of Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. Since late March, Hamas has organized weekly protests near the border with Israel, in hopes of breaking the blockade.

In the past few years he implied that secular women behave like animals due to their immodest dress and claimed 2016 that according to Jewish law, non-Jews were forbidden from living in Israel.

The former Vanity Fair writer has been a harsh critic of President Trump's daughter and son-in-law, both presidential advisers.

That jab there referred to, of course, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner - the quip was met with cheers and applause from the audience.

At the ceremony in Jerusalem, Jared Kushner spoke to the crowd, saying, "When there is peace in this region, we will look back upon this day and remember that the journey to peace started with a strong America, recognizing the truth".
