On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton called on Donald Trump to condemn recent anti-Semitic hate crimes.
According to The Washington Post, anti-semitic hate crimes have been on the rise in recent years and have continued since Trump took office in January. The report said over a dozen Jewish community centers received threatening phone calls on Monday, while a Jewish cemetery near St. Louis was vandalized.
Hillary Clinton took to Twitter and said, “JCC threats, cemetery desecration & online attacks are so troubling & they need to be stopped. Everyone must speak out, starting with POTUS.”
