The presidency of Donald J. Trump has been plagued by scandal and littered with racist and hostile rhetoric. Trump issued a public statement claiming to clean up the mess he has created while simultaneously not accepting any of the blame. This is a classic move by Trump where he attempts to deflect blame while sucking up all of the credit. The Ann Frank Center for Mutual Respect is not buying what Trump is selling in his typical snake oil sales pitch.
The Ann Frank Center for Mutual Respect issued a brutal statement which, in part, said:
The White House repeatedly refused to mention Jews in its Holocaust remembrance, and had the audacity to take offense when the world pointed out the ramifications of Holocaust denial. And it was only yesterday, Presidents’ Day, that Jewish Community Centers across the nation received bomb threats, and the President said absolutely nothing. When President Trump responds to Antisemitism proactively and in real time, and without pleas and pressure, that’s when we’ll be able to say this President has turned a corner. This is not that moment.
