I am blogging today about a news article which you can read in full at http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/02/07/republicans_block_vote_on_resolution_stating_that_holocaust_targeted_jews.html
This is the headline of the article:
House Republicans Avoid Voting on a Resolution Stating That the Holocaust Targeted Jews
The following quote is from the news article:;
The resolution, a shrewd effort to pin Republicans down on something the Trump administration has needlessly made an issue, condemned the White House’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, which failed to mention Jews or the anti-Semitism that led to Adolf Hitler’s genocide against them. It also called for the House to reiterate “the indisputable fact that the Nazi regime targeted the Jewish people in its perpetration of the Holocaust,” condemn Holocaust denialism, and demand acknowledgment from the White House that Jews were targeted.
In the wake of controversy over the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, the White House defended it, saying that it had wished to be inclusive by acknowledging that other groups had been killed by Hitler’s regime as well.
The problem is that President Donald Trump has not bowed low enough to the Jews, in spite of the fact that his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are both Jewish.
The victims of the Holocaust included many categories of people besides Jews. However, the non-Jews that were killed are not important. Only the Jews count, and Trump seems to ignore this. What is WRONG with him?
