After Trump victory, child tells classmates that now “all the Jews have to leave this country”

The day after Trump was elected President of the United States, a student at Burns Park Elementary school in Ann Harbor, Michigan reportedly said that “Now that Trump is president, all the Jews have to leave this country”.

This is one of a number of reports of alleged antisemitic activity that have occurred as a result of Trump’s victory.

The Principal of the school appears to be taking the issue seriously, and has circulated a short letter to the students and parents which calls for calm in the light of unrealistic claims about Trump’s presidency, as well as restating the school’s commitment to ensuring that nobody is excluded.

We will be reporting on any further information relating to this incident.
