On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence made a surprise visit to the St. Louis Jewish cemetery that was vandalized Monday.
Pence, who was joined by the state’s first Jewish governor, Eric Greitens (R),” said “From the heart, there is no place in America for hatred or acts of prejudice or violence or anti-Semitism.”
The Vice President, who called Missouri’s response to the situation “inspiring,” said the vandalism is “a sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” during a speech earlier in the day.
Prayer was given by a rabbi after Pence concluded his speech at the cemetery. He then took part in clearing brush in an effort to take part in a beautification project of the area.
