  • Pittsburgh synagogue shooting: Brothers and married couple among 11 victims

The building anticipation of his presence and the "hold your breath, anything could happen" reality of Trump's visit will only add to the nation's stress and do little to soothe the torment of the victims' families or assuage the pain of the community in Pittsburgh. The spokesperson said that the US President and Modi enjoy a strong personal rapport and Trump is committed to deepening the India-US relationship.

"If the president is looking to come to Pittsburgh, I would ask that he not do so while we are burying the dead". He said the city did not have enough public safety officials "to provide enough protection at the funerals and to be able, at the same time, draw attention away to a potential presidential visit".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders opened her first press briefing in 26 days with a tearful statement about the shooting, but ended the briefing with a diatribe against what the White House views as unfair coverage by the press.

In a follow up tweet, the president said the American people are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much fake news, adding "they get it and fully understand".

Donald Trump took to social media on Monday morning (Oct. 29) to double down on his belief that the media is partly responsible for the anger many Americans feel today. The president is the grandfather of several Jewish grandchildren. Kushner, she noted, is the descendant of Holocaust survivors.

Sanders' press briefings now have greater scarcity value than Trump's own.

"No, the president's not placing blame", Sanders said.

Already, Trump has contributed more to the country's anguish than to its healing by diluting his initially appropriate response to Saturday's massacre.

President Donald Trump's approval rating is down four points in the wake of pipe bombings sent to his political rivals and a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, new poll numbers showed on Monday.

Authorities have released the names of the 11 people killed by a gunman during worship services in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

In a tweet this Monday, the president accused CNN and other news outlets of inaccurately reporting comments he made.

Roughly 39 parent of Americans say Mr. Trump has the greatest responsibility to tone down the overheated partisan rhetoric in the US, compared to 24 percent who say its mostly up to the news media, according to a HarrisX/Hill.TV poll.

Acosta tried to ask another question.

"I think that's also something reasonable, given that ... it's part of his government and the people that he supports who sow that nationalism, and hate", she told The Current's guest host Laura Lynch.

After Sanders refused to list specific outlets and journalists, Acosta pressed further: "Shouldn't you have the guts, Sarah, to state which outlets, which journalists, are the enemy of the people?" "I think that is outrageous, and I think it's irresponsible".

While Trump has condemned the Pennsylvania shootings as an anti-Semitic act and has decried political violence, he also has continued his political schedule over the past week and largely kept up his criticism against Democrats and the media.
