December 12, 2019 at 04:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order targeting anti-Semitism in colleges, as he joined a Hanukkah event at the White House in Washington DC on Wednesday.

The measure broadens the government's definition of anti-Semitism and allows the Education Department to take direct action against what he views as anti-Semitism on campuses.

Trump signed the order alongside Patriots; owner Bob Kraft and his senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The US President also paid tribute to the victims of Tuesday's deadly attack on a Jewish market in Jersey City.
