THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION, 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA – During his tour of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall yesterday, Donald Trump spoke out against anti-Semitic threats targeting Jewish community centers, as reported by Politico’s Nolan McCaskill and Louis Nelson.
“This tour [of the National Museum of African American History and Culture],” Trump said, "was a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms.”
“[These] anti-Semitic threats… are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.”
Trump spent about an hour touring the new museum, along with Senator Tim Scott (TP-South Carolina), daughter Ivanka Trump Kushner, and HUD Secretary nominee Ben Carson. Carson is the only African American nominated for a cabinet position. The Senate’s only other African American member, Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), was busy visiting his constituents in the Garden State, reminding them that 20 million Americans are about to lose their healthcare insurance when the Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump battled allegations of anti-Semitic influences on his operation, including from Campaign Chairman Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart News CEO.
Associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was standing right next to Trump when he whispered to Ivanka, “I’d much rather be visiting the Holocaust Museum, but Reince said I had to come here because it’s Black History Month.”
“That’s nice, Daddy,” Ivanka replied, “Dr. Carson looked like he was in Seventh-Day Adventist heaven, walking next to you.”
“Well, he damn well should. But what Bannon wanted me to say was that all those anti-Semitic threats came from Muslims.”
“But Daddy, how does Steve know that?”
“Honey, he doesn’t. But it fits right into our promises to my millions and millions and millions of supporters.”
“Don’t forget, I won the popular vote.”
“The only people I hate are the people who hate me, but there’s only a few of them. Everybody in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Florida loves me, and millions of people in Colorado love me too."
