Obviously, Donald Trump has always been a firm Zionist. It seems however, that he just keeps doubling down on his Zionism and Israel worship. He moved the embassy to Jerusalem, brought America to the brink of war with Iran, promised $38 billion in aid to the Jewish state, but still he hasn’t done enough for them. It’s gotten to the point where he can no longer attack his opponents within the Democratic Party without talking about how much they hate Israel, and by extension, all Jews. In the eyes of Trump, if you hate Israel then you hate America.

What exactly has Trump’s constant pandering to Israel achieved? I doubt it has increased his support among the American people. Ironically, it hasn’t even increased his support amongst American Jews - the majority of them still don’t support him. Trump evidently is frustrated by this, most recently on Twitter he shared a quote calling himself “the king of Israel” and lamenting the fact that American Jews still don’t like him. Hilariously the media has chosen to interpret Trump’s judaeophilia as anti-semitism. Perhaps if Trump spent more time focusing on issues that actually mattered to his base (like the long forgotten about WALL) his chances of re-election would be greater.

No doubt some of this is the usual and so far futile attempt to gain Jewish votes by playing the Israel card. Most of the Democratic party's elected representatives are still uncritical of Israel, though there is a growing chasm on the issue within the grassroots as evidence by polls. There are also serious divisions within the Jewish grassroots when you look at polls on the settlements and Netanyahu himself. The official Jewish representative organisations like the AJC and ADL are not really picking this up, but at grassroots level it is clearly the case.

If anybody seen an old man ranting and claiming he is the "chosen one" and "I am the king of Israel" they would take pity on him...while hoping he gets some much needed medical help for his psychiatric disorder.

Criticizing the actions of the state if Israel does not make someone an anti Semite.
What in your opinion does make someone an anti-Semite?

Maybe but it is not just deeply anti-Muslim but also deeply anti-Christian to oppose the right of return for indigenous Palestinians and their descendants who were ethnically in 1948. That right of return would kiss good bye to the Zionist colonial project.

Weirdly the only place I've ever heard real anti-semitism being expressed is when working in the US.

Bit of a shock to hear it. From a southern belle, perhaps unsurprisingly.
