NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AJC is deeply troubled and puzzled by President Trump's recent comments about the wave of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the country, and urges the president to clarify his intended meaning.
In a meeting with state attorneys general, President Trump called the threats "reprehensible" but added: "Sometimes it's the reverse, to make people – or to make others – look bad."
Earlier today, AJC called on President Trump to maintain the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism position within the State Department.
Later this evening, the president will deliver his first address to a joint session of Congress, when he is expected to address the issue of rising anti-Semitism in the U.S.
