The Low Down President Trump Condemns Rise in Anti-Semitism Published 2 years ago on Feb 23, 2017 By Michael Evans President Donald Trump strongly condemned anti-Semitism last Tuesday. This was in response to recent criticisms that he had failed to specifically respond to threats that Jewish community centers were facing. In condemning anti-Semitism, the president claimed that it is horrible and that he was going to ensure that it stops. He insisted that he denounces prejudice wherever he can. This statement by Trump follows a new wave of threats directed at Jewish community centers across the country. On Monday, Federal authorities were looking into threats that were made to 10 Jewish facilities, though there seems to be no cause to worry as it has been established that they could have been a hoax.

While addressing a press conference last week, Trump denied claims that he is anti-Semitic, though he did not explicitly condemn the threats. He told the journalists that the question about the threats made him look like he was being accused personally for anti-Semitic behavior. During last week’s joint press conference with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, he failed to denounce the purported threats against Jews.

He promised that he will ensure that anti-Semitism is brought to an end. According to the president, the anti-Semitic threats that targets Jews are horrible and painful reminder of the work and effort that is required in order to get rid of evil and prejudice among the American people. In one incidence, vandals demolished headstones of more than 160 graves at a Jewish cemetery in Missouri. The White House press Secretary told news reporters that the president has been very clear on the need to unite all Americans. According to the secretary, the president will work to ensure that prejudice is defeated.

Following Trump’s assurance that he will ensure that anti-Semitism stops, the vice-chairman of the American Jewish Organizations, Malcolm Hoenlein, said that he was hopeful that the president’s promise would set the tone for the country in being tolerant. Most Americans believe that anti-Semitism, hate and all sorts of evil must be done away with in order to ensure peaceful co-existence.
