The Donald failed to mention Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance Day statement.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote from 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.

End quote

So-called “other groups” who were killed by “Hitler’s regime” don’t count. The Holocaust is about the Jews. Why didn’t Trump’s Jewish son-in-law advise him on this subject.
