President Trump‘s Holocaust remembrance remarks are very similar to the Holocaust Museum Website’s “Introduction to the Holocaust” page.

A White House release on Monday of the script reads, “the Holocaust was the state-sponsored, systematic persecution and attempted annihilation of European Jewry by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.”

The museum’s introduction reads, “The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.”

Whether it’s plagiarism or not, Trump is set to deliver the keynote address on Tuesday at the annual Yom Hashoah remembrance ceremony as part of the Holocaust Memorial Museum’s tradition. Ever since the museum opened in 1993, every American president has participated in the ceremony.

Just this weekend, Trump addressed anti-Semitism with the World Jewish Congress through a video conference.

“We must defeat terrorism, and we must not ignore the threats of a regime that talks openly of Israel’s destruction,” Trump said.
