Pence visits vandalized Jewish cemetery, decries anti-Semitism

US Vice President Mike Pence condemned this week's vandalism of a Jewish cemetery in Missouri as well as anti-Semitism in general during his visit to the site on Wednesday. During a speech at the cemetery in Saint Louis and another one that he gave later at a factory in the city, Pence repeated President Donald Trump's denunciation of the latest wave of anti-Semitism. In a symbolic gesture, the vice president put on work gloves and helped workers at the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery collect pieces of smashed headstones.
