Washington D.C. (April 25, 2017) -- Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matt Brooks made the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s remarks at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s National Days of Remembrance event in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda this morning:
We applaud President Trump for his heartfelt and moving remarks today. He bore witness to the horrific suffering of the Jewish people during the Holocaust and spoke from the heart directly to the survivors, those men and women of indomitable strength and moral courage, calling them beacons shining a light of hope that dispels the darkness of hatred and evil.
President Trump denounced Holocaust deniers and anti-Semitism in all its forms, including on university campuses and in threats and attacks against Jewish communities and against the State of Israel.
He stated unequivocally: “We will confront anti-Semitism, we will stamp out prejudice, we will condemn hatred, we will bear witness, and we will act. As President of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people, and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the State of Israel.”
