 Trump went to Pittsburgh to mourn the death of the shootings by some residents.


On October 27, a serious shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue killed 11 people, wounded six and wounded four of the police. Bowers, the suspect, was arrested at the scene and has been charged.

After the White House announced that Trump would go to Pittsburgh on the 30th, more than 1,300 people sent an open letter through social media, saying Trumps words and deeds fuelled hatred and violence in the United States and that his visit was unpopular. But Rabbi Myers, one of the people who had witnessed the shooting, said he always welcomed the arrival of the president of the United States. Fawkess news reports said Meyers received threatening mail because of this statement.

Members of Jewish communities take part in a candlelight vigil to commemorate the victims of the synagogue shooting on October 27, 2018, local time.

In the afternoon, Trump and his party went to the synagogue of the tree of life and the hospital where the injured were. CNN reported that when Trump and his party arrived at the church, many local residents gathered in the surrounding streets to protest Trumps arrival. Outside the church, a number of white hexagonal crosses were erected for the 11 deceased. Trump and his wife Melania offered stones and white roses brought from the White House to the crosses as a tribute to Jewish custom. They then went to University of Pittsburgh medical center to see 4 wounded policemen.

He was accompanied by his daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Kushner and finance minister Mnuchin besides Melania. Kushner and Mu u chin were both Jews, and Yi Wan CA converted to Judaism.

According to CNN, Trump had invited several politicians to Pittsburgh. These include Senate Majority Leader, Republican Senator McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, Democratic Senator Schumer, House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Pelosi, but they all rejected Trumps invitation. Officials in Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh also did not participate in Trumps activities. Pittsburgh Mayor Petto said earlier that he had advised Trumps staff to come to Pittsburgh on the 30th some too early. The Washington Post said Trump had offered to meet with a relative of the victim but was refused. After the shooting, Trump said that if the church had armed security personnel, the results might be very different. Relatives of the victim said it was inappropriate for Trump to blame the mistake on the local community. On the 30 day, the local community held a funeral for 3 of the 11 victims. The funeral of the remaining victims will be held in the next few days. Source: China News Network Editor: Ji Guo Jie _NBJ11143
