WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says people who attack Jews who support the Iran nuclear deal are like African-Americans who differ with him on policy and then conclude he's "not black enough."
Obama spoke in an interview with the Jewish newspaper "Forward." He was asked whether it hurt him personally when people say he's anti-Semitic.
Obama answered, "Oh, of course." And he said there's no evidence to support that claim.
The president added that he's more offended when he hears members of his administration who are Jewish being attacked. The president didn't mention any specific critics or targets by name.
