Trump’s Proposed $3 Million Cut to Hoaxacau$t Museum Sparks Bipartisan Backlash  

The Times of Israel


A proposed budget cut by President Donald Trump of $3 million to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum has sparked a bipartis­an backlash in the nation’s capital. Six­ty-four members of Congress sent a letter to the president Friday demanding the budget proposal be amended to maintain the museum’s current funding levels, while Anti-Defamation Le­ague chief Jonathan Greenblatt issued a statement calling the cuts “a mistake.” … The proposed cuts include $3 million in federal support that goes to the Was­hington, D.C. Holoca­ust museum, roughly a five percent decre­ase in the museum’s budget …”In our vi­ew, the mission of the museum has never been more important, particularly as the number of anti-Semi­tic attacks around the world rises,” the Congressional letter said. “Now is not the time to cut fund­ing for this national treasure.”
