White House condemns ‘cowardly’ cemetery vandalism, threats to Jewish centers

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tells reporters in his daily briefing a short while ago that President Donald Trump “continues to be deeply disappointed and concerned by reports of further vandalism at Jewish cemeteries.”

He adds:

The cowardly destruction in Philadelphia this weekend comes on top of similar accounts from Missouri and threats made to Jewish community centers around the country.

The president continues to condemn these and any other forms of anti-Semitic and hateful acts in the strongest terms. From our country’s founding we’ve been dedicated to protecting the freedom of our citizens’ rights to worship.

No one in America should feel afraid to follow the religion of their choosing freely and openly. The president is dedicated to preserving this originating principle of our nation.
