Under Fire For Recent Holocaust Flubs, Trump Will Headline Days of Remembrance Ceremony

posted on April 24, 2017

The Washington Post’s Kristine Phillips and Cleve R. Wootson Jr. report that Donald Trump will deliver Tuesday’s keynote address at the Days of Remembrance ceremony, an event that remembers the Holocaust and is hosted by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. “But unlike his predecessors, Trump — as a candidate and as president — has been widely criticized by Jewish organizations for what they see as a lackluster and slow response to the recent spike in anti-Semitic incidents across the country. His young administration also has been faulted for a couple of recent flubs about the Holocaust,” Phillips and Wootson Jr. write. They add, “This means that the speech Trump will deliver during the week-long commemoration of the Holocaust could be a critical step for him to appease some of his critics.”
