'Horrible' Anti-Semitism Must Stop

After more and more acts of anti-Semitism have occurred in the United States, Donald Trump addressed these hateful actions this morning, as seen in the above video from MSNBC. The Times of Israel reports that Trump vowed to "fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms":

US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that anti-Semitic threats to the American Jewish community were “horrible” and “painful,” as well as a “sad reminder” of evil.

The condemnation came a day after bomb threats were issued against Jewish community centers across the United States for the fourth time in just over a month. The US president has faced growing criticism for failing to explicitly renounce anti-Jewish sentiment.

“We have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms,” Trump said during a visit to the National Museum of African American History in Washington, DC. “The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community centers are horrible and are painful, and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.”

Trump earlier told MSNBC that “anti-Semitism is horrible, and it’s going to stop and it has to stop.” Asked if he denounced displays of anti-Semitism, the president said: “Oh of course, and I do it wherever I get a chance.”

Trump later spoke generally of the problem of racial divides. “It’s just age-old. There is something going on that doesn’t allow it to fully heal. Sometimes it gets better and then it busts apart. But we want to have it get very much better, get unified, and stay together,” he said.

The US president did not give specifics on how he planned to combat hatred, saying only that “we’ll have various things coming out over a period of time, and you’ll see them as they come out and we’ll let you know exactly what they are...”
