Trump Finally Addresses Rising Anti-Semitism After Dozens of Bomb Threats to Jewish Community Centers,
Donald Trump on Tuesday finally addressed the growing wave of anti-Semitic attacks in the US, calling them “a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.”
The president’s comments come just one day after another 11 Jewish community centers received bomb threats and a historic Jewish cemetery in St. Louis was desecrated, with as many as 170 headstones knocked over.

The bomb threats this week, which all turned out to be hoaxes, follow three separate waves of similar threats in the month of January, bringing the total to 69 threats targeting 54 centers in 27 states since the beginning of the year, according to the Jewish Community Center Association.
