(CNN)Donald Trump, fresh off a colorful speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition's Presidential Forum, used social media Friday morning to declare himself the winner of the event.
Donald Trump: 'I totally won' Republican Jewish Coalition forum
Responding to Bloomberg Politics' Mark Halperin, who conducted an interview critical of Trump with former Bush administration press secretary Ari Fleischer, Trump tweeted: "I totally won the RJC meeting. Know many members who said 'not even close.' Only FULL standing O. But don't want $'s"
Trump appeared to be doubling down in on remarks he made during his speech, when he said to the audience of wealthy Jewish donors, "You're not gonna support me because I don't want your money. You want to control your politicians, that's fine. Five months ago I was with you. I do want your support, but I don't want your money."
He also drew boos from the crowd for refusing to pledge to keep Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel, saying during a question-and-answer session he wanted "to wait until I meet with" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The billionaire businessman also tried to make a connection to the audience, by saying, "I'm a negotiator like you folks, we are negotiators."
The Anti-Defamation League, an anti-Semitism watchdog, later came to Trump's defense saying in a statement that "we do not believe that it was Donald Trump's intention to evoke anti-Semitic stereotypes."
