Trump to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day

Share

President Donald Trump, after a series of administration missteps on the Holocaust and Jewish history, decried anti-Semitism at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's National Days of Remembrance Tuesday at the United States Capitol, promising the audience he will "confront anti-Semitism".

"They were murdered by an evil that words can not describe, and that the human heart can not bear", Trump said in a speech to the World Jewish Congress Plenary Assembly in NY on Yom HaShoah, Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"Iran and the Islamic State want to destroy us, and a hatred for Jews is being directed towards the Jewish state today", he said.

Invoking the words of Nobel Prize recipient and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, President Donald Trump pledged Tuesday that the USA would "confront anti-Semitism" and "stamp out prejudice".

President Trump raised eyebrows in January shortly after taking office when he issued a statement marking Holocaust Remembrance Day that made no mention of the six million Jews killed. His press secretary, Sean Spicer, also faced backlash after he suggested in a recent press conference that Adolf Hitler didn't use chemical weapons on his own people, remarks for which he quickly apologized.

"I think it is important on a personal and I dare say a spiritual level to understand that the Trump movement was real, Trump was real, he was fighting for us, the people", Anglin wrote.

Anti-Semitic threats of violence have persisted across the United States in the months following the 2016 presidential election, including a wave of bomb threats against Jewish community centers and day schools. "We urge the president and his administration to act to protect targeted communities against hate crime and discrimination". In his speech today, he said he stood in awe of the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people.

Trump's proclamation also commemorated the USA and Allied forces' liberation of Nazi concentration camps.

Trump's pledge to "confront" anti-Semitism also could take several forms, according to Menashri.

In addition, one of Trump's national security aides, Sebastian Gorka, has been dogged by his alleged connections to anti-Semitic, Nazi-affiliated groups in Hungary, where he once lived.

"On Yom Hashoah, we look back at the darkest chapter of human history", the president said, using the day's Hebrew name.
