them in Afghanistan. Mary Bruce, this attack on Democrats over Israel clearly trying to drive a wedge in the democratic party. Reporter: Yeah, George, the president is clearly trying to use religion to drive this partisan wedge but this kind of language about disloyalty sparks a lot of very real fear. We are seeing many Democrats coming out and slamming the president's comments calling them anti-semitic and, remember, of course, an overwhelming majority of democratic voters traditionally vote Democrat. We saw congresswoman ilhan OMAR responding saying, the popular vote was hashtag disloyal to trump. Considering payroll tax cut, any sense that will go anywhere on capitol hill? Reporter: That is likely to face a real uphill battle. The concept of doing a payroll tax cut is unpopular with Republicans in the past especially during an election year and won't want to recalibrate the Republican tax cuts. We are seeing the president floating some other ideas like changes to capital gains taxes but the president seem too think he can do that without congressional approval. That's not likely to go over well here. Can't happen. Thanks very much.
