Missouri Rep. Jason Smith touted on Newsmax that the United States is turning its back to Israel. The congressman's comments come as Democratic lawmakers removed $1 billion in military funding to Israel on Tuesday.

Speaking with "The Chris Salcedo Show," Smith says, "the radicals and the Democratic party are really leading the Democrats to an area that…no one in America would love to see. The fact that the people that [are] leading [Nancy Pelosi's] party right now…are opposite of everything that we would ever possibly want in an ally. And Israel is our greatest ally that this country has, and right now, the Democrats are trying to turn their back on them."

Reports indicate that House Democratic lawmakers objected to a provision allowing additional spending for Israel's "Iron Dome" defense system.

Among concerns from liberal Democrats is that the funding could result in Palestinian casualties.
