Trump, first lady to visit Pittsburgh after synagogue shooting

Trump stepped into the role of national consoler, a title he wears uncomfortably, as he arrived in Pennsylvania to visit Squirrel Hill, the Pittsburgh neighbourhood that is home to the Tree of Life synagogue, where 11 people were gunned down during Sabbath services on Saturday. But Jeffrey Myers, rabbi with the Tree of Life synagogue, told NB:, "It would be my honour to always meet a president of the United States". "Anti-semitism is a plague to humanity and it is responsible for numerous worst horrors in human history", she said.

The top four USA congressional leaders - Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer, Republican House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - declined to join Trump in Pittsburgh, a source familiar with the planning said.

All flags at the White House, public grounds, military posts, naval stations and ships will be flown at half-staff through October 31 as a mark of "solemn respect" for the victims, Trump ordered.

Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Pittsburgh around 3:45 p.m. along with Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.

"Mayor Peduto's sole focus today is on the funerals and supporting the families", said Tim McNulty, Peduto's communications director, according to CNN. God asks nothing less of us.

"It's a awful, bad thing what's going on with hate in our country frankly, and all over the world", Trump told reporters as he left for a series of campaign events in IN and IL. One man, describing their place in the community, referred to the pair fondly as "the boys". "I'm also going to the hospital to see the officers and some of the people that were so badly hurt", Trump told Fox News host Laura Ingraham of "The Ingraham Angle", in an interview that aired Monday night.

Around 2000 protesters, including many of Pittsburgh's Jewish community, were waiting for him. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. "You can't on one hand say we should talk to each other, and then I don't talk to him".

Bowers, a 46-year-old truck driver, appeared in court Monday where a judge ordered he be held without bail.

The Trump administration has rejected the notion that he has encouraged far-right extremists who have embraced him.

Paul Carberry, 55, lives near the synagogue and said Mr Trump should not have visited until the dead were buried.
