In an exclusive interview for SaraACarter.com, Jewish Voices for Trump co-chair Boris Epshteyn challenged his counterpart at Joe Biden’s presidential campaign to a debate, which he claims he refuses to accept.
This Biden Campaign didn’t respond to this reporter’s request for an interview with its Jewish Outreach Director, Aaron Keyak.
Current polling suggests President Trump is favored by nearly 30% of Jewish voters.
“That’s 5% higher than what President Trump got four years ago in 2016 and Joe Biden’s 67% support in that same poll is much lower than Hillary Clinton got in 2016 from Jewish Americans. And it would be, if that held on election day, would be the lowest Jewish American support for a Democrat since Michael Dukakis,” says Epshteyn.
With Keyak and Doug Emhoff, who’s headlined a number of Jewish voter outreach events for Biden and is married to his vice presidential pick Kamala Harris, Biden’s team is “sad,” Epshteyn said, adding “[Emhoff’s] only qualification I guess is being Kamala Harris’s husband.”
But, it”s also the fact that Biden and his party have aligned themselves with a number of antisemitic figures and it’s a cause for alarm, Epshteyn explained.
“In terms of where they stand, it’s clear,” Epshteyn said. “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris met with Jacob Blake Senior. He’s an antisemite. He’s a supporter of Louis Farrakhan who calls people like you and me termites.”
Blake Senior’s Facebook was found to be ripe with recent antisemitic posts lauding Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has called Jews ‘termites’ and the like. The antisemitism doesn’t stop there.
“They had Linda Sarsour speaking at their Democrat National Convention. She’s another pal of Louis Farrakhan’s. He’s not antisemite, he’s anti-termite, which means he wants to terminate people like you and me,” Epshteyn added.
According to Biden’s campaign site, however, he pledges to combat antisemitism, vows to support a strong U.S.-Israel relationship, and even says he’ll fight the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement that seeks to economically strangle Israel.
“Jewish Americans cannot trust Joe Biden,” Epshteyn said. “And, by the way, since when is not supporting BDS some sort of line in the sand? BDS is an antisemitic movement, so that shouldn’t be something that Joe Biden even has to say, but he does and it’s a lie because his people, the people who will be controlling him, the puppet masters behind Joe Biden do support BDS, they are antisemites, and Joe Biden is no friend to Jews or the State of Israel.”
Biden recently compared Trump to Adolf Hitler’s confidante and Nazi chief Joseph Goebbels, which Epshteyn says “was demeaning of the Holocaust,” adding that Biden’s Jewish Outreach Director recently liked and soon unliked a tweet comparing Trump to Hitler.
Epshteyn also gave an open offer to “anybody who’s willing to moderate” the debate including me and Jewish Telegraph Agency’s “leftist” Ron Kampeas. “Aaron Keyak better come out of hiding and debate me on the clear contrast between President Trump fighting against antisemitism and standing for the State of Israel and Joe Biden being pro antisemitism and pro-Iran,” said Epshteyn.

Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns visited Israel Wednesday in an effort to rally regional support amidst attacks from Iran. Burns discussed possibilities for regional cooperation with Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
Late July, drones struck an Israeli tanker off the coast of Oman. As a result, two crew members died. Since then, the United States blamed Tehran for the attack. Iranian officials deny their involvement.
At the time, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the White House was noticing a disturbing pattern. “We feel it follows a pattern of attacks and other belligerent behavior,” Psaki said. “And these actions also threaten freedom of navigation through crucial waterways — something that is posing a risk to a range of countries around the world.”
Therefore, the press secretary suggested that countries get involved. “You know, I would also note that we know our British partners have called for action, called for steps in a coordinated way from international bodies, including the United Nations, which we would certainly support,” Psaki said. Now, Burns’ visit symbolizes the United State following through on the White House’s comments.
According to a statement from Burns’ office, he met with Bennett after meeting with the head of Israel’s Mossad intelligency agency David Barnea. Burns met the Israeli leader in Tel-Aviv. “They discussed the situation in the Middle East, with emphasis on Iran, and possibilities for expanding and deepening regional cooperation,” the statement read.
Next, Burns will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
