Several Democrats have blamed President Donald Trump for the repeated attacks against Jewish people in New York.
There have been at least eight reported incidents of anti-Semitic violence in New York this month, with the latest coming Saturday when five people were stabbed at a rabbi’s home during a Hanukkah celebration.
Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told Fox News’s Ed Henry Sunday that the attacks have been “emanating from Washington.”
“I also want us to be clear what’s happening here,” de Blasio said Sunday. “An atmosphere of hate has been developing in this country over the last few years. A lot of it is emanating from Washington, and it’s having an effect on all of us.”
