At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Reince Priebus praised William Knudsen, a former GM President (who praised Nazi Germany) in his speech. At the 2016 Vice Presidential debate, Priebus sat with a state party chairman who previously publicly told an anti-Semitic joke. Under Priebus, the RNC’s trip to Israel was sponsored by the American Family Association (AFA). The RNC pushed ahead with the trip even after the Anti-Defamation League warned the RNC that sponsoring such a trip with AFA would be “inappropriate.” The AFA’s staff contained two virulently anti-Semitic figures. Additionally, AFA materials have promoted efforts to convert Jews and denied that Jews worship the same God.
