Over 100 headstones vandalized at Jewish cemetery

The vandalism Monday of over 100 headstones at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis arrived against a backdrop of controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s seeming reluctance

President Donald Trump today denounced anti-Semitism during a tour of the African-American History Museum in Washington D.C. Trump said that the museum was a reminder to denounce bigotry in all its forms, spurring him to say in his prepared remarks that “the anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community, and community centers, are horrible and painful.”

The statement is fairly unremarkable in terms of politicians denouncing anti-Semitism and announces no formal plans for fighting anti-Semitism, be it meeting with community leaders or creating an anti-hate task force. However, it is noteworthy as a shift from Trump’s comments last week, where he denied anti-Semitism was a legitimate problem, instead saying that hate crimes were faked by his opponents for political gain.

Jake Turx is the journalist that President Donald Trump shushed during his press conference yesterday when Turx attempted to ask about rising anti-Semitism in the country.

Afterward, Orthodox news site Matzav attacked Turx in rather vicious terms for bringing disrespect to the community, a charge we refuted.

Then Turx appeared on Fox’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, mainly to defend the president from the less-than-ideal optics of the situation. Watch it above and see if you agree with Turx that Trump’s words were “hopeful.”
