At least ten Jewish community centers across America received telephone bomb threats on Monday, according to media reports. The president's daughter, Ivanka Trump, also called for "religious tolerance" in a statement issued on Twitter.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday denounced the recent series of anti-Semitic vandalism, online attacks and threats targeting Jewish Community Centers, contending that they suggest more must be done to address "prejudice and evil".
At 12:21pm on Monday St. Paul Police posted "SPPD did not find any bombs or unsafe devices at Highland Park Jewish Community Center".
These actions are consistent with the Trump White House's statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which did not mention Jews, the Jewish people, anti-Semitism, or the fact that six million Jews were slaughtered by Hitler and the Nazis during the Holocaust.
