Happening in the world: Trump condemned anti-semitism during a visit to the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, noting the need to combat hatred “in all of its very ugly forms.” This was one day after 11 bomb threats were made to various Jewish community centers around the country and a Jewish cemetery in University City, Mo. was vandalized. Trump further said that these events are a “very sad reminder of the work that must still be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.” (NYT)
