A two-part modern sculpture entitled “Loss and Regeneration”, designed by Jewish artist Joel Shapiro, who was born in America in 1941, stands in the courtyard of the US Holocaust Museum with one section near the sidewalk, and the other part near the door to the museum, as shown in my photo below.

According to the recent news article, President Trump wants to cut 3 million dollars from the budget for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.  Where is Trump’s Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner when we need him?

You can read all about the budget cut in this news article: http://thehill.com/policy/finance/337140-trump-faces-backlash-over-3m-holocaust-museum-cuts

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A bipartisan group of 64 members of Congress is demanding a reversal on $3 million in funding cuts to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum proposed in President Trump’s budget.

“In our view, the mission of the museum has never been more important, particularly as the number of anti-Semitic attacks around the world rises,” the letter to the Interior appropriations subcommittee said. “Now is not the time to cut funding for this national treasure.”

The letter, spearheaded by Reps. Stephanie Murphy, (D-Fla.), Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), John Katko, (R-N.Y.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), highlights the challenges Trump faces in cutting funds to popular programs. Trump’s budget proposal shifts $54 billion in nondefense discretionary funding to defense and proposes deep cuts to social safety net and health programs.

The reduction, which would return the museum’s budget to its 2016 level of $54 million, is roughly a 5 percent decrease.

End quote

Trump wants to cut the funds to the US Holocaust Museum to a measly $54 million. For shame!

Today, there are news articles about Natalie Holloway, whose body has never been found. What really happened to her? Who knows?

I think that she escaped, to get away from her controlling mother.
