Trump Condemns Racism, Anti-Semitism

Trump Condemns Racism, Anti-Semitism

President Donald Trump spoke out against racism and anti-Semitism Tuesday following a tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Trump’s comments followed 10 bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers across the country and the vandalization of more than 170 Jewish graves in a Missouri cemetery on Monday.    The president’s concessions, however, were called inadequate by some Jewish advocacy groups. Critics have previously focused on the new administration’s failure to mention Jews on Holocaust Remembrance Day and its silence on anti-Semitic attacks across the country, which increased from 13 to 28 in New York when compared to the same period in 2016. Pressure for the White House to condemn anti-Semitism rose further on Thursday, when the president interrupted a reporter from an Orthodox Jewish magazine asking about bomb threats made against Jewish centers recently.
