Eleven Jewish community centers across the country were hit by another wave of bomb threats Monday. It was the fourth wave of nationwide bomb threats against JCCs in the last five weeks. In total, 69 threats have been reported against 54 JCCs. Meanwhile, at a cemetery in University City, Missouri, the gravesites of more than 100 Jews were vandalized over the weekend. Paul Goldenberg of the Secure Community Network said, “I’ve been in the business for 20-plus years, and this is unprecedented.” On Monday, Trump’s daughter Ivanka tweeted, “America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers. #JCC.” In response to Ivanka, New York Congressmember Jerrold Nadler tweeted, “Very nice, but this should be coming from your father. @realDonaldTrump must directly condemn anti-Semitism and all those who espouse it.” This is Congressmember Nadler speaking on CNN this morning.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: “Maybe he doesn’t want to denounce his own supporters, because some of his own supporters are responsible for this. I mean, certainly the alt-right, Breitbart News, was a fountainhead of white nationalism, which includes anti-Semitism and anti-black bigotry.”

But instead of speaking out, Trump chastised a Jewish reporter—who is one of Nadler’s constituents in Borough Park, Brooklyn—and told him to “sit down” at his news conference Thursday, when the reporter asked about the bomb threats.

Jake Turx: “Bomb threats have been made against Jewish centers all across the country in the last couple of weeks. There are people who are committing anti-Semitic acts or threatening to—”

President Donald Trump: “You see, he said he was going to ask a very simple, easy question. And it’s not.”

Jake Turx: “It’s an important one.”

President Donald Trump: “It’s not. Not a simple question, not a fair question. OK, sit down. I understand the rest of your question. So here’s the story, folks. Number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life.”
