Trump, Holocaust survivors celebrate
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.
