Shapiro: Trump Said Opponents Could be Behind Bomb Threats Against Jewish Centers
Attorney General Josh Shapiro gave reporters a rundown of his meeting with Trump about the recent bomb threats against Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries.
Shapiro met with Trump, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and several state Attorneys General from across the country.
According to Shapiro, Trump said what is happening is “reprehensible” he had his own ideas of who was causing it.
According to the Post-Gazette, Shapiro said Trump believed “Someone’s doing it to make others look bad.”
“I really don’t know what he means, and I don’t know why he said that,” Shapiro said according to Billy Penn.
During the meeting, Trump also assured the Attorneys General that he would address the threats during his speech to a joint session of Congress tonight.
“Hopefully he’ll clarify a bit more about what he means about the reverse possibly being true,” Shapiro said.
