State Department reveals its draft of Holocaust memorial statement to Trump, yet he skuttles and omits references to Jewish victims instead.

State Department officials drafted their own statement last month that mentioned the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, but the White House moved forward with its own version which omitted any reference to the Jewish people, according to people familiar with the process who spoke with Politico.

President Donald Trump delivered a statement on International Holocaust Memorial Day on Monday that received backlash for not mentioning the Jewish people. While white supremacist leader Richard Spencer praised the statement as a “de-Judification” of the Holocaust, many including Sen. Tim Kaine and former Hillary Clinton runningmate slammed it as “Holocaust denial.” More from Raw Story here.
