CNN, a critic of Donald Trump and his administration (to the point that Trump has called them an outlet which put out “fake news,” highlighted the Anti-Defamation League’s opposition to the Trump White House’s statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Trump White House released a statement, which critics claimed it minimized the suffering of the Jewish people by not naming the Jews in the statement. You can read the statement below:
“It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust. It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror.
“Yet, we know that in the darkest hours of humanity, light shines the brightest.? As we remember those who died, we are deeply grateful to those who risked their lives to save the innocent.
“In the name of the perished, I pledge to do everything in my power throughout my Presidency, and my life, to ensure that the forces of evil never again defeat the powers of good. Together, we will make love and tolerance prevalent throughout the world.”
But, the end of the CNN article mentioned how the World Jewish Congress issued a statement that said the statement was accurate, considering other countries were affected by the Holocaust and not only Jews. Why not start with that, CNN?
