Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets emotional on Pittsburgh, testy with reporter

The tide of hate and the man in the White House

Pittsburgh synagogue shooting: Brothers and married couple among 11 victims

President Donald Trump will visit Pittsburgh on Tuesday following the massacre at the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, the White House confirmed today.

While stopping short of blaming Trump's rhetoric for inspiring the attacks, Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN Worldwide, contended there was a "total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media". This has nothing to do with politics in America.

"The president cherishes the American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a press briefing.

When Acosta asked Sanders for a list of media outlets that Trump considers the enemy, she refused, saying, "Those individuals probably know who they are".

"The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News".

People barricaded themselves within various rooms during the violence, and so far none have been allowed to leave yet. Four police officers were among six people wounded in the shooting, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell D.

Sanders rejected the suggestion that Trump's divisive language might have inspired the synagogue shooter, or a Florida man accused of sending homemade pipe bombs to prominent Democrats. He said that "this evil Anti-Semitic attack is an assault on humanity".

Police arrived and confronted Bowers as he tried to exit the building, and two officers were injured.

Sanders was speaking with reporters when Acosta asked if the White House "has the guts" to name "which outlets" the President believes peddle in Fake News.

Jeffrey Myers, a Tree of Life rabbi who was present when the attack started, told CNN that "the president of the United States is always welcome".

He is charged with 29 federal counts, including hate crimes. Social media posts attributed to Bowers indicate that in addition to hating Jews, he is also virulently anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim.

His two-out solo blast to left gave Boston a four-run lead, one protected by Joe Kelly and Chris Sale over the final two innings. Many streets around Fenway Park will be closed to traffic from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. on game nights, no matter who wins.

Cooperman said she was surprised and gladdened by the outpouring of solidarity. "President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you commit yourself to compassionate, democratic policies that recognize the dignity of all of us".

Sanders replied, "This is a president who has risen to that occasion and worked to bring our country together on a number of occasions". The suspect, authorities said, was living in a van with windows covered with Trump stickers and pictures of top Democrats with cross-hairs over their faces.

Trump condemned the Pittsburgh attack as an act of anti-Semitism and has denounced political violence. He added that the media "must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly".

That caravan has been a popular talking point of late for Trump, whose early efforts to ratchet back his rhetoric amid last week's pipe-bomb scare have since given way to old patterns. He has also said armed security at the synagogue could have prevented the shooting while continuing to point fingers of blame at the media. "Blowback from his words came and cost people's lives, and we said enough is enough".
