Pence in Missouri: ‘We Condemn This Act of Vandalism... in the Strongest Possible Terms’

‘It’s been inspiring to people all across this country to see the way the people of Missouri have rallied around the Jewish community with compassion and support’


PENCE: “Now, before we get started I would like to address something that happened here in St. Louis over the weekend. On Monday morning America awoke to discover nearly 200 tombstones were toppled in a nearby Jewish graveyard. Speaking just yesterday, President Trump called this a horrible and painful act and so it was. That along with other recent threats to Jewish community centers around the country. He declared it all a sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil. We condemn this vile act of vandalism and those who perpetrated in the strongest possible terms."
