ANALYSIS/OPINION:

It is shameful that President Trump’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day statement failed to mention Jews or anti-Semitism, particularly since the president is making a big push to establish closer ties with Israel and that his son-in-law Jared Kushner, daughter Ivanka Trump and three of his grandchildren are all Jewish. This was an inexcusable omission (“US museum defines Holocaust after White House is criticized,” Web, Jan. 30).

Mr. Trump has already angered and alienated many minority groups, including women, Mexicans, Muslims, African-Americans, Native Americans and now Jews. Is there any minority he has yet to offend?
