Trump initially responded by saying he was "very honored" by his Electoral College victory over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. As Trump defended himself -"I am the least anti-Semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life".
"See, he lied about - he was going to get up and ask a very straight, simple question". "Welcome to the world of the media", he said. The American Jewish Committee called Trump's answers "worrisome and puzzling", asking, "But if every such question elicits either no substantive response or, mistakenly, is taken personally, then what are people of good will supposed to conclude?" The Daily Stormer worships Adolf Hitler, posts defenses of the Holocaust, and attacks Jewish people as "kikes".
The answer came a day after the president deflected a somewhat similar question during an appearance with the Israeli prime minister.
Eventually, Trump did say, "We are going to everything within our power to stop long-simmering racism".

Rosenthal noted Phillips "used his no-trade protection to thwart deals to the Diamondbacks and Nationals" last offseason. In his 15 years in the Major League Baseball Phillips has won four Gold Gloves and been voted to three All-Star Games.
Well, what was going through my mind leading up to that was I hope he is generous enough to take one more question and he was, so I was extremely grateful that he gave me that opportunity.
The reporter simply wanted Trump to comment on the uptick, presumably to condemn it (which was an easy softball), and talk about the things the administration can do to fight anti-Semitism. "Thank you", he said on Wednesday. He even warmly drew attention to the fact Mr Trump's grandchildren were Jewish.
Half of Trump's response was about how he won the Electoral college, before adding, "As far as people, Jewish people, so many friends, a daughter who happens to be here right now, a son-in-law, and three attractive grandchildren".
"Make it clear that not only are you not anti-Semitic, but that you reject people who are, even if they voted for you", he said. It's that he's more upset by the charge than by the actual anti-Semitism growing around the country, some of which his supporters are perpetrating.
"It's very unfair what's been done to him and I understand why he's so defensive", he said in an interview with Fox News later on Thursday.
"Trump may claim to love the Jewish people, but his actions demonstrate callous indifference to anti-Semitism at best and outright advancement at worst", said Stosh Cotler, CEO of Bend the Arc Jewish Action, a liberal group. So you looked for a new job, went through a fairly grueling application process, if you do say so yourself, got the offer. You asked the reporter, presumably for no reason other than the fact that she is black, "are they friends of yours?"
