These days and on the course of last month, several Jewish centers received bombing threats. As Donald Trump didn’t say anything about these events, other politicians are urging him to speak out and do something about it.
Hillary Clinton, the president’s opponent, wrote on her Twitter this morning to urge him to take actions. These latest events are terrible and something needs to be done. The first one to take measures is Donald Trump, wrote Clinton.
Not only the threats, but a Jewish cemetery was vandalized, while on the online environment, threats are all over the place. Over one hundred headstones were destroyed. The cemetery is from ST. Louis.
FBI is now investigating the threats, that proved to be hoaxes. Fortunately, no one was injured, but members of this community got scared. Officials from the FBI believe these are hate crimes.
Although Trump didn’t say anything, the White House did respond. The staff said that hate crimes will not be allowed and violence based on hate will have no place in the country.
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, who is Jewish, opened up about the threats and said that it is important to tolerate everyone no matter the religion. These centers need protection.
Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea, also had a message for the president. She, just like her mother, said that he needs to do something.
American citizens and politicians altogether think that something needs to be done about anti-Semitism. Trump needs to be the first one to address the issue and he needs to do it fast.
