The ongoing wave of bomb threats targeting Anti-Defamation League offices and Jewish community centers was denounced on Tuesday by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

"I want to acknowledge that there's been an additional wave of threats to Jewish community centers and Anti-Defamation League offices," Spicer said at the beginning of the day's press briefing. "According to some reports, there have been over 100 bomb threats phoned into Jewish institutions since the start of this year alone."

Spicer added that "We denounce these latest anti-Semitic and hateful threats in the strongest terms," stressing that the administration is attempting to find ways in which to stop them.

The press secretary quoted from President Donald Trump's address to Congress last week, emphasizing that 'We're a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its forms. We denounce these latest anti-Semitic and hateful threats in the strongest terms."

Spicer's comments came as the ADL said on Tuesday that they were responding to several bomb threats at different offices across the country and after all 100 senators signed a letter demanding action to counter the wave of ant-Semitism, The Hill reported.
