Wisconsin isn't alone.

In a statement, the bureau said it was helping investigate the threats as possible civil rights violations. Trump cut off a question from Jake Turx, a reporter for Ami Magazine and the first Hasidic Jewish member of the White House press corps, who asked Trump how he plans to address the "uptick in anti-Semitism and how the government plans to take care of it".
