In a video address to the World Jewish Congress Plenary Assembly on April 23 President Donald Trump mourned the people lost in the Holocaust and stated that anti-Semitism must be eliminated.

The Assembly was meeting in New York on Yom HaShoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Trump called the Holocaust “the darkest chapter of human history” and characterized the State of Israel as “a monument to unyielding strength.”

“We must stamp out prejudice and anti-Semitism everywhere it is found. We must defeat terrorism, and we must not ignore the threats of a regime that talks openly of Israel’s destruction,” Trump continued.

“To all of you tonight, who have come from around the world, let it be known, America stands strong with the State of Israel, ” he said.
