Full Video: Trump’s Remarks at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s National Days of Remembrance; ADL welcomes President’s pledge

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Tuesday welcomed President Trump’s pledge to confront anti-Semitism and his recognition of the need to honor both the survivors and the victims of the Holocaust.

In Mr. Trump’s remarks to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Days of Remembrance ceremony in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, the president called anyone who promotes Holocaust denial, “an accomplice to this horrible evil” and pledged to stamp out prejudice, condemn hatred, and bear witness to the memory of the six million Jews and millions of others who perished in the Shoah.

Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO, issued the following statement:

“We welcome President Trump’s clear pledge today to confront anti-Semitism and we look forward to working with the president and his administration to put his pledge into action.

It deeply matters that President Trump used the power of his office to stand against anti-Semitism and hate and to honor the memory of the six million Jews and millions of others murdered in Europe. But this spirit should not be restricted to Holocaust Remembrance Day. We very much hope the president will continue to use his bully pulpit to speak out against anti-Semitism, bigotry, and hatred in all forms. We urge the president and his administration to act to protect targeted communities against hate crime and discrimination.

As Americans, we are also proud that every president since the museum opened has addressed the Days of Remembrance event. This is an important statement about our nation’s highest ideals and commitment to apply the lessons of the Holocaust.”
