Washington - President Donald Trump is opening his address to a joint session of Congress by condemning the recent threats against Jewish community centers and a fatal shooting in Kansas being investigated as a hate crime.

Trump on Tuesday said that “while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.”

The president had received criticism from some civil rights groups who had accused him of being slow in denouncing the violent acts. He had yet to discuss the murder of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, one of two Indian men shot in a bar outside Kansas City.

There have also been dozens of threats against Jewish community centers — and vandalism in Jewish cemeteries — across the nation in recent weeks.

Words are cheap. Make it a priority of the FBI to find and punish the perps.

To #4- During Obama's tenure, a Chassidic Rabbi from Brooklyn, was shot dead for the heck of it, on Shabbos, by a low life piece of garbage, in Miami Beach. The Chassidic man was on his way to Shul, Obama never condemned the shooting, which was perpetrated by someone, who bragged "I just bagged a Jew". Even though an arrest was made, and there was DNA evidence connecting the killer to the crime, a Jewish judge in Miami Beach dismissed all charges, stating that the evidence "was insufficient". One would have thought that Obama and Eric Holder would have pursued civil rights violations against the perpetrator. To this date, the Justice Dept., has done bupkis in that case!
