During his speech, which lasted four minutes, Trump spoke about the Jewish people’s suffering during the Holocaust and promised to support Israel in its fight against anti-Semitism worldwide: “We must stamp out prejudice and anti-Semitism everywhere it is found. We must defeat terrorism and we must not ignore the threats of a regime that talks openly of Israel’s destruction. We cannot let that ever even be thought of.”
