The first event was scheduled to take place at 4 p.m. EST and the second at 8:05 p.m. EST, both in the East Room.
US President Donald Trump on Wednesday delivered remarks and lit a menorah in honor of the holiday of Hanukkah. During the event, the President also signed an Executive Order Combating Anti-Semitism.
This Executive Order makes clear that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to anti-Semitic discrimination. When enforcing Title VI, Agencies will consider the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism as well as the contemporary examples provided by the IHRA. There has never been an American President more supportive of the Jewish People than President Donald J. Trump.
