Trump condemns anti-Semitism, after bomb threats and vandalism

A wave of bomb threats to Jewish community centers around the country and the toppling by vandals of up to 200 headstones at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis over the weekend prompted President Donald Trump to speak out publicly for the first time against anti-Semitism.

He told reporters that the “anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” adding that ” we have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms.”

President Trump ‘was speaking at the end of a tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington.’
