The Anne Frank Center criticized President Donald Trump's comments condemning anti-Semitism as "too little, too late."

Trump on Tuesday denounced the recent threats targeting Jewish community centers around the country as "horrible and painful." Bomb threats Monday led to several Jewish community centers being evacuated and vandals knocked over about 170 headstones in a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis.

"The president's sudden acknowledgment is a Band-Aid on the cancer of anti-Semitism that has infected his own administration," Steve Goldstein, director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect wrote in a Facebook post.

"His statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting anti-Semitism, yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record."

"Mr. President, your [sic] too little, too late acknowledgment of anti-Semitism today is not enough," Goldstein added.

"The anti-Semitism coming out of this administration is the worst we have ever seen from any administration," Goldstein said, noting the absence of a mention of Jewish people in a Holocaust remembrance.

"When President Trump responds to anti-Semitism proactively and in real time, and without pleas and pressure, that's when we'll be able to say this president has turned a corner. This is not that moment," Goldstein said.
