President Donald Trump , his wife Melania, his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, paid tribute to the six million Jews who were killed by the Nazis at Israel’s Yad Vashem memorial on Tuesday. Trump called the Holocaust “an indescribable act of evil” and a “savage crime”.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump walked hand in hand and laid a wreath together.

“Words can never describe the bottomless depths of that evil, or the scope of the anguish and destruction. It was history’s darkest hour,” Trump said.

“It was the most savage crime against God and his children,” said Trump, who is visiting Israel and the Palestinian Territories on the second leg of his first foreign trip since taking office in January.

Trump was then invited to light  the Eternal Flame at the Holocaust memorial site. The flame burns continuously in the Hall of Remembrance, where a crypt holds the ashes of Holocaust victims.

Trump left a message in the guestbook  at Yad Vashem, where he called the short visit “so amazing.”

“It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends. So amazing & will Never Forget!” he wrote.

  1. We have visited Yad Vashem several times. It is a very heart wrenching museum to go through but very necessary to see the tragedy that took place. We should never forget.
