President Trump on Tuesday denounced the spike in anti-Semitic attacks occurring across the U.S. in recent days. “Anti-Semitism is horrible and it’s going to stop,” Trump told NBC News’s Craig Melvin, while answering reporters questions during a tour of Washington, D.C.’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture. “The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful,” Trump said. He was referring to the more than 10 bomb threats on Jewish community centers on Monday alone, as well as the vandalism of a Missouri cemetery full of Holocaust survivors. Meanwhile, Trump said the museum was “fantastic” and a “beautiful” tribute to American heroes. “They’ve done an incredible job,” he added. Trump was accompanied by Ivanka Trump; Housing and Urban Development nominee Ben Carson; Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC); and presidential aide Omarosa Manigault.
