Trump, Holo­caust sur­vivors cel­e­brate

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - REMEMBERING -

WASH­ING­TON — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is cel­e­brat­ing Hanukkah in the com­pany of eight Holo­caust sur­vivors, telling each they had en­dured “evil be­yond de­scrip­tion.”

The pres­i­dent also ref­er­enced the fa­tal Oc­to­ber shoot­ing of 11 Jews at a Pitts­burgh syn­a­gogue. He said in the af­ter­math of that “sin­is­ter” killing, “we reaf­firmed our solemn duty to con­front anti-Semitism ev­ery­where.”

Trump’s daugh­ter Ivanka con­verted to Ju­daism to marry Jared Kush­ner. Through the cou­ple, Trump has three Jewish grand­chil­dren.
