(AP) – President Donald Trump has signed an executive order targeting what his administration describes as a growing problem with anti-Semitic harassment on college campuses.
Trump has sought to closely align himself with Israel, a move that appeals to many evangelical voters, too.
He says the order sends a message to universities to reject anti-Semitism if they want federal dollars.
Critics say the order is designed less to combat anti-Semitism than to have a chilling effect on free speech and to crack down on campus critics of Israel.
