You can read about Trump’s recent Holocaust statement at http://www.vox.com/2017/1/30/14431216/trump-holocaust-statement-6-million-jews
The following quote is from the news statement:
President Donald Trump released a brief statement to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a small, symbolic step taken by past presidents to mark one of the world’s greatest tragedies. It didn’t take long for many people to notice that a key word was missing: Jews.
“It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust,” Trump’s statement began. “It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror.”
As critics quickly noted, there was no mention that 6 million Jews [had] died in the Holocaust, or an acknowledgment of the virulent, state-sponsored anti-Semitism that led to their deaths — details that are crucial and commonplace in most discussions of the Holocaust.
Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is Jewish. There is no excuse for Trump’s lack of knowledge about the most important thing that has ever happened, in the history of the world: the killing of 6 million Jews by the Nazis.
Washington DC has a Holocaust Museum that is very close to Trump’s office. The Donald should get over there ASAP and learn the facts of the Holocaust.
Oh sure! Some people are now saying that only 1.1 million people were killed in the Holocaust, but Trump should acknowledge the original 6 million figure.
The news article continues with this quote:
Here’s Trump’s full statement on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of the largest Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, which was designated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day by the United Nations in 2005.
Here is Trump’s statement:
It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust. It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror.
Yet, we know that in the darkest hours of humanity, light shines the brightest. As we remember those who died, we are deeply grateful to those who risked their lives to save the innocent.
In the name of the perished, I pledge to do everything in my power throughout my Presidency, and my life, to ensure that the forces of evil never again defeat the powers of good. Together, we will make love and tolerance prevalent throughout the world.
