Pence Condemns Vandalism of Jewish Cemetery During Missouri Speech

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech in Missouri today that briefly touched upon the recent vandalism of a Jewish cemetery in the St. Louis area.

Pence, who was at the Fabick CAT headquarters in Fenton to talk jobs and the economy, took a moment to address the vandalism following remarks by President Trump yesterday.

“That, along with other recent threats to Jewish community centers around the country,” he said, “declare to all a sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil. We condemn this vile act of vandalism and those who perpetrated it in the strongest possible terms.”

UPDATE –– 4:11 pm ET: Pence later visited the cemetery to pay his respects.
