Christie insists antisemitism in US not a ‘rise’ but ‘unmasking’: ‘It’s been there’

In an interview with the Associated Press, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie argued that the reported rise of antisemitism in the United States is not a “rise,” but rather a “unmasking” of existing prejudices. Christie insisted that antisemitism in the United States has been around for “quite a long time,” citing the spike in bomb threats against Jewish centers and other hate-related incidents as evidence. Christie spoke out against President Donald Trump, whom he believes should be speaking out more forcefully against antisemitism and creating a national consensus to fight hatred and bigotry.
