Simon Weisenthal Center leaders speak on Trump
The following statement was released by Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, Dean and Founder and Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center on the election of Donald Trump
“The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights NGO joins with all other Americans in congratulating Donald Trump on his election to be the next President of the United States.
We are buoyed by Donald Trump’s unambiguous commitment to a strong and safe democratic Israel and his recognition of Jerusalem as its eternal and undivided capital.
We look forward to working with President Trump on a wide range of other issues including, Iran, International Terrorism, Human Rights, online hate and the burgeoning scourge of anti-Semitism here at home and globally.
The Wiesenthal Center looks forward to leadership from the Trump Administration in defeating BDS and ensuring an intimidation-free campus environment for Jewish students at our nation’s universities.
Finally, we commend Mr. Trump’s commitment, which he made last night to strive to be the President of all Americans, including those who voted against him. The Simon Wiesenthal Center is committed to working together with all sectors of our society, along with the Trump Administration for the betterment of all Americans.
