President Trump & Family Visit Pittsburgh To Pay Respects To Synagogue Shooting Victims

Barack Obama Pleads For Gun Control After The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

Pittsburgh authorities said that Bowers barged into the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue located in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, shouting hateful remarks towards Jewish people in a 20-minute attack, according to USA Today.

"The irony of all this is that the first people that took care of him were all Jewish", Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, the president of Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, said in a Fox News interview Monday.

The comments also come after a man in Pittsburgh killed 11 people and injured several more in a mass shooting at a synagogue - a crime police say was driven by the alleged shooter's hatred for Jews and migrants.

Some people in Pittsburgh have welcomed the presidential visit, while others have used it as an opportunity to criticize his partisan rhetoric, which they claim is leading to violence.

Ignoring the mayor's pleas, the president intends to travel to Pittsburgh on Tuesday with his wife Melania - and his daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who are practising Orthodox Jews.

Robert Gregory Bowers, who was wounded in a gun battle with police during the rampage, was released from hospital in the morning and a few hours later was wheeled into the courtroom.

The richest people on Earth increased their wealth by a fifth to $8.9tn (£6.9tn), according to a report by Swiss bank UBS. Wealth transition from just five families accounted for 30 percent of the continent´s wealth expansion, the study said.

President Trump is visiting Pittsburgh on Tuesday to pay his respects to the community and the families of the 11 victims.

A rabbi asked him to wait at least until the end of shiva. She said he based his decision on input from the victims' families, who told him they did not want the president to be there on the day their loved ones were being buried. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. In one, he described Trump as a "globalist" and said that Trump was not "winning". "The very first thing the media did was blame the president and make him responsible for these ridiculous acts", she said.

It called on Trump to "fully denounce white nationalism", to "stop targeting and endangering all minorities", to "cease your assault on immigrants and refugees" and to "commit yourself to compassionate democratic policies that recognise the dignity of all of us".

On Monday, a United States magistrate judge ordered the suspect, Bowers, to be held without bond. He's Jewish and said he's been to a lot of weddings and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs at Tree of Life over the years.

"I don't think anyone can substitute their judgment for his", said CNN analyst Errol Louis, because Myers had a front row seat to the massacre.
