Trump, Bloomberg And Bernie Condemn Monsey Attack

(JTA) — President Donald Trump called the attack at a rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, “horrific.”

“The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific,” Trump said Sunday afternoon in a tweet. “We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.”

Earlier on Sunday, the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump, who is also a White House senior adviser and a convert to Judaism, tweeted that the Saturday night attack was “an act of pure evil.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., condemned the attack and anti-Semitism.

Several of the Democratic candidates for president condemned the attack, including Michael Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders, who are Jewish.

“If there was ever a time in American history where we say no to religious bigotry, this is the time,” Sanders said at a public menorah lighting in Des Moines, Iowa, on Sunday night. “If there was ever a time when we say no to divisiveness, this is that moment.”
