President Donald Trump will give the keynote address at the National Holocaust Museum's National Day of Remembrance ceremony on Tuesday in the Capitol Rotunda, the Washington Examiner reported on Sunday.

The museum made the announcement in a press release on Sunday, which noted that other presidents have also delivered the keynote address during the ceremony since the museum opened in 1993.

The ceremony will be held a day after Israel marks Holocaust Memorial Day, JTA reported.

The Trump administration has drawn criticism several times in matters relating to the Holocaust.

Earlier this month, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that Syrian President Bashar Assad was worse than Nazi leader Adolf Hitler because he used Sarin gas on his own people and that Hitler did not use chemical weapons.

Following fierce criticism, considering that Hitler killed millions in gas chambers, Spicer apologized for his remarks.

And, in January, a White House statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day did not mention either the Jewish People or anti-Semitism.

Following that, the museum issued its own statement saying that "The Holocaust teaches us profound truths about human societies and our capacity for evil. An accurate understanding of this history is critical if we are to learn its lessons and honor its victims."

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, who are top White House advisers, took a private tour of the museum last month, JTA reported. Last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, along with members of his family, also visited the museum.
