Ivanka Trump tweets about tolerance after JCC bomb threats

On a day when Jewish Community Centers across the United States received bomb threats, Ivanka Trump encouraged religious tolerance in a tweet.

At least 10 Jewish centers across the country, including two in the Buffalo area, were targeted Monday by threats, according to national media reports and local Jewish Community Center officials.

Here's is the tweet Trump posted Monday night:

In a statement to NBC News, White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday issued the following statement: "Hatred and hate-motivated violence of any kind have no place in a country founded on the promise of individual freedom. The President has made it abundantly clear that these actions are unacceptable."

Some have questioned President Trump's remarks last week when asked about anti-Semitism. The Washington Post looked at 11 cases in which Trump was asked to comment on racial or religious issues.

In addition to the bomb threats nationally, vandals over the weekend damaged as many as 200 headstones in a Jewish cemetery in Missouri, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Last month, 48 Jewish community centers in 26 states and a Canadian province received a total of nearly 60 bomb threats, according to an association of Jewish centers across the country.
