WASHINGTON -- US President Donald Trump marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a "heavy heart and a somber mind," he said in a statement on Friday, pledging to ensure that evil never again overcomes the forces of good.

"It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror," Trump said. “Yet, we know that in the darkest hours of humanity, light shines the brightest.‎ As we remember those who died, we are deeply grateful to those who risked their lives to save the innocent." “In the name of the perished, I pledge to do everything in my power throughout my Presidency, and my life, to ensure that the forces of evil never again defeat the powers of good. Together, we will make love and tolerance prevalent throughout the world," he said.
