Synagogue shooting suspect leaves hospital

Synagogue shooting suspect leaves hospital

Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh on Monday called on President Donald Trump to condemn white nationalism unequivocally after he said he will visit the synagogue where a gunman killed 11 worshipers over the weekend.

Sanders wouldn't say which outlets the president views as enemies of the people, although Mr. Trump in the past has said up to 85 percent of outlets are fake news.

Officials say Robert Bowers was armed with a rifle and three handguns when he walked inside the Tree of Life synagogue during Sabbath services Saturday morning and opened fire, killing 11 people and wounding six in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in USA history.

Sanders said that the president is not referencing "all media" as the enemy of the people, but rather is calling out "the growing amount of fake news that exists in the country".

Trump has drawn criticism in some quarters for his outspoken attacks on Democrats and a caravan of Central American migrants traveling toward the U.S. The suspect in the Pittsburgh shooting had complained on social media about an influx of refugees. "I'm a citizen, he's my president, he is certainly welcome".

It was just last week that President Trump referred to himself as a "nationalist", which angered a lot of people and organizations who have condemned white nationalism since the attacks in Charlottesville previous year.

"The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open and obvious hostility and report the news accurately and fairly".

Huckabee Sanders said Trump and his wife plan to visit Pittsburgh on Tuesday to meet with the victims' families.

"I think it's irresponsible to blame the president and members of his administration for those heinous acts".

She said Trump is not responsible for these acts any more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for one of his supporters opening fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice past year.

A gunman who expressed hatred of Jews exploited a vulnerability common in so many houses of worship across the country - doors that are unlocked for worship - to target a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Critics of Trump have said that his incendiary rhetoric has contributed to a rise in extremism and could be perceived by radicals as a green light for violence.

A Florida man, whose van was covered with pro-Trump and anti-Democrat stickers, was arrested last week for sending pipe bombs to a dozen prominent Democrat figures, including former President Barack Obama. "We're mourning. We really need some time alone, and his presence is not helping us", Ardon Shorr said. He noted that his outlet was sent mail bombs in the past week.

"It should be up to the rabbis and the families, whether or not they want to take a visit from the president", Doyle said.

"I think he would cause more strife, ill feeling, and sadness", Cecil Sharpe, 92, a long-time Squirrel Hill resident said before the White House announcement.
