The Anne Frank Center For Mutual Respect told Donald Trump that his anti-Semitism comments are “too little, too late.” The center has been very critical of the 45th president, especially for his discrimination, religious intolerance, and racial hatred. Today, its message was spot-on.

Anne Frank’s step-sister Eva Schloss, 86, told Newsweek last year:

‘If Donald Trump become(s) the next president of the U.S. it would be a complete disaster. I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism.’

Shortly after obtaining the presidency, Donald Trump implemented a rash executive order halting immigrants and refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. Following this order, chaos broke out at airports across the country. Various injustices occurred by officials who were given little to no direction on how to apply the order. One such injustice involved handcuffing a five-year-old child, and separating them from their mother.

Executive Director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, Steven Goldstein, has been a critic of the new president for his religious intolerance and discrimination. He commented on Trump’s acknowledgment of Anti-Semitism today on their Facebook page:

‘As President Trump prepares orders to wall out Mexicans and shut out refugees from America, today marks one of the most hateful days in our nation’s history.’

After Trump visited the National Museum of African American-American History And Culture Monday morning according to PBS, the president said:

‘The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.’

Goldstein further wrote:

‘The President’s sudden acknowledgement is a Band-Aid on the cancer of Antisemitism [sic] that has infected his own Administration. His statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting Antisemitism [sic], yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record.’

Goldstein’s full statement from the center’s Facebook page is below:

‘The President’s sudden acknowledgement is a Band-Aid on the cancer of Antisemitism that has infected his own administration. His statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting Antisemitism, yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record. Make no mistake: The Antisemitism coming out of this Administration is the worst we have ever seen from any Administration. The White House repeatedly refused to mention Jews in its Holocaust remembrance, and had the audacity to take offense when the world pointed out the ramifications of Holocaust denial. And it was only yesterday, President’s Day, that Jewish Community Centers across the nation received bomb threats, and the President said absolutely nothing. When President Trump responds to Antisemitism proactively and in real time, and without pleas and pressure, that’s when we’ll be able to say this President has turned a corner. This is not that moment.’
