Trump: Do Not Cut Budget for Holocaust Museum

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Demand President Trump restore funding cut from Holocaust Museum.

President Trump’s proposed budget would cut 3 million dollars from funding to the Holocaust Museum, angering a group of bipartisan lawmakers. Trump’s budget has already been met with heavy criticism due to his focus on the military and national defense above all else, and the cuts made to something as important as the Holocaust Museum are the last straw.

“Now is not the time to cut funding for this national treasure,” say the 64 lawmakers. Right now, with the rise in anti-Semitic attacks and sentiments, the Holocaust Museum is more important than ever. It preserves the memory of the Jews and other innocent people killed in the Holocaust while also educating current and future generations on why we must combat hate and bigotry. Holocaust deniers have existed for years, but as long as this museum remains standing and filled to the brim with vital historical materials, even the deniers will be forced to stare the truth in the face.

Trump’s budget cut may very well fuel more anti-Semitic attacks and validate ignorant Holocaust deniers. We cannot allow this to happen. Sign this petition to demand Trump restore the funds to this vital piece of American culture and history.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

Your budget cuts to the Holocaust Museum are unacceptable. This museum is extremely vital in preserving the memory of the Jews killed by the Holocaust and in educating future generations about why we must fight the spread of hate and bigotry. With the recent rise in anti-Semitic attacks, this museum is more important than ever.

Your budget plan is already heavily flawed, placing too much funding into the military and national defense when we need the funding for environmental study, education, health care, and other vital programs. You cuts to the Holocaust Museum are the final straw, and every lawmaker disapproves of your plan. You must restore the 3 million dollars that would be cut from the museum’s funding.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    we need all forms of holocaust muesums!

  2. This is NOT an “anti-semitic attack”. The Holocaust Museum honors both Jews and non-Jews. How is it then anti-semitic??
    As well, Trump is not anti-semitic by any stretch of the imagination. He supports the Jewish state of Israel “110%”. His daughter and Presidential Advisor Ivanka is a Jewess; his son-in-law and Senior Advisor Jared Kushner is a Jew. He has a huge number of Jewish supporters. There is no way he is anti-semitic.

    • I am correcting my erroneous quote about Trump’s amount of support for Israel. It was not “110%”. The actual quote is “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent. 1000 percent. It will be there forever.”

    When did we forget “Never again”? It’s happening NOW! We must stand against this hatred that’s rearing it’s ugly head and sweeping across American values. We are better than this…I hope.

  4. Pres Trump needs to visit this treasure I went there a few days ago I will never forget what I saw there. Sorry but I think this is anti semetic
    It is an accident of fate that his daughter married a Jew and converted
    A few months ago he knew it was a Holocaust Remembrance Day. He never mentioned The JEWS!

    • If it’s anti-semitic as you say, then it’s also anti-everyone-else-who-died-in-the-holocaust. There are an estimated 5 million non-Jews who died also, who the Holocaust Museum also honors. So this move by Trump may be anti-holocaust-victim, but it’s not anti-semitic.
      Nobody’s complaining about the non-Jews being forgotten. Why not?
      And what about the estimated 27 million or more Christians who also died in World War 2, at the hands of the USSR? Are we remembering them? Does anybody care?
      If Trump didn’t mention the Jews on Holocaust Remembrance Day, he has surely made up for it with all his kowtowing to them since then. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “There is no greater support for Israel and the Jewish State than President Donald Trump”.

  5. This museum was a misconceived idea from the get-go. It never should have been built. Instead, perhaps a memorial along the lines of the WW II memorial or other War memorials in DC — which do not require such a big expenditure of taxpayer dollars. Come on, Jewish people are very rational and I think they understand the argument that the Holocaust did not happen on American soil, therefore the questioning of its appropriateness. Yes, have such a museum in Israel, fine. Or, as an alternative since the musem already exists, let’s push for charging admission to defray the costs.
