Former President Donald Trump is set to meet with an Orthodox Jewish educational group on Friday, amid ongoing controversy over his decision to dine with two prominent anti-Semites.
Trump will address the Torah Umesorah Annual Presidential Conference at his club, National Doral, in Miami, a person close to Trump confirmed. The event is part of a day-long gathering bringing together leaders, educators and askanim (Jewish social workers) for the group, which promotes Torah-based religious education and private Jewish day schools.
The event comes at a particularly sensitive time for Trump. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, the former president hosted a dinner at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach with Ye (better known as Kanye West) and white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
