Contrary to White House spokesman Sean Spicer's ignorant and offensive remarks, Hitler did use chemical weapons to systematically murder millions of Jews. It's stunning and unbelievable that this basic fact eludes the White House, and worse, that these latest comments fall within a troubling pattern of Holocaust apathy and denial by the Trump Administration.

Sunrise U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement in response to today's White House press briefing:

“Contrary to White House spokesman Sean Spicer's ignorant and offensive remarks, Hitler did use chemical weapons to systematically murder millions of Jews. It's stunning and unbelievable that this basic fact eludes the White House, and worse, that these latest comments fall within a troubling pattern of Holocaust apathy and denial by the Trump Administration. The fact that we are having to provide this history lesson during the Jewish holiday of Passover is especially disgraceful. At the very least, Mr. Spicer should take some time off and visit the Holocaust Museum, or he's more than welcome to visit my district and hear first-hand accounts of this atrocity from any of the thousands of survivors who live in my community.”
