President Donald Trump spoke at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Days of Remembrance Ceremony today, and used his remarks to slam those perpetuating anti-Semitism and threats against the Jewish people.
The Trump Administration has repeatedly faced blowback due to several instances where critics ripped on the White House for not being particularly knowledgable or sympathetic about Jewish issues. In today’s remarks, Trump reiterated his pledge to support Israel, and recalled the horrors and suffering Jews experienced in the Holocaust.
Eventually, Trump turned his ire towards Holocaust-deniers, saying they were “filled with total hate.” Trump also used his address to talk about those who have threatened Israel with destruction.
“Those who deny the Holocaust are an accomplice to this horrible evil, and we’ll never be silent,” Trump said. “We will confront anti-Semitism. We will stamp out prejudice, we will condemn hatred, we will bear witness, and we will act.”
