ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: During a visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, President Trump denounced anti-semitic threats to the Jewish communities as 'horrible' and 'painful'. Trump added that they are a 'sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate, prejudice and evil.' Trump's comments coming just days after an unusual exchange he had with a journalist during a press conference last week. When the journalist asked about recent threats to 48 Jewish centers across the country and signs of rising anti-Semitism, Trump appeared to take the question personally, replying: "I am the least anti-Semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life." He added he was also the "least racist person," told the reporter to be "quiet," accused him of lying and then dismissed the question as "insulting."
