Pittsburgh mayor suggests Trump should wait to visit

Several high-profile USA lawmakers have declined an invitation to join President Donald Trump on his visit to Pittsburgh to pay tribute to the 11 victims of Saturday's mass shooting at a synagogue, USA media reported on Tuesday.

Two men embrace as they arrive at the Rodef Shalom Congregation where the funeral for Tree of Life Congregation mass shooting victims Cecil Rosenthal and David Rosenthal was held.

"I'm just going to pay my respects".

Pittsburgh's Democratic mayor William Peduto disagrees.

Hundreds of protesters assembled to show their displeasure with Trump's presence.

Mr Trump was accompanied by his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is Jewish, and his daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism when she married Mr Kushner.

Bennett, now on a visit to the United States and Pittsburgh, said that "some people are using this horrific antisemitic act to attack President Trump", something which is "unfair and wrong".

"President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully renounce white nationalism".

Instead of opening with prayers for the 11 victims of the Tree of Life shooting, Loren Jacobs praised Jesus Christ and then offered prayers for four Republican candidates.

Knowing that they were probably the first to greet the gunman when he walked in - "that's the hardest part for me", said Cathy Bremer after the joint funeral.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, a Democrat, told reporters ahead of the announcement that the White House should consult with the families of the victims about their preferences and asked that the president not come during a funeral. Asked if Trump has done enough to condemn white nationalism, Sanders said he "has denounced racism, hatred and bigotry in all forms on a number of occasions".

The letter was signed by the group's Pittsburgh steering committee and almost 43,000 members of the public, Bend the Arc said.

The interview struck a chord with a lot of people on Twitter, as Dr Cohen showed compassion in highlighting the shooter's humanity following what is being called the worst anti-Semitic attack in US history.

"The president spends every single minute of every single day looking for the best ways to protect the safety and security of Americans", she said.

"Anger is a very powerful emotion, but if it's used at the right way to do the right thing, it can bring tremendous results", said Rabbi Mendy Alevsky, Chabad at Case Western Reserve University. May God grant peace to the dead, healing to the injured, and comfort to the families of those hurt and killed and to all the Jewish Community.

Myers said he has no plans to meet with President Donald Trump, who is planning to visit the city later Tuesday, but has received hate-filled backlash for saying the president is welcome at his synagogue.

"I will not be meeting with the president".

Trump said he would visit hospitalized police officers and other people wounded in the mass shooting.

"You can protest later on", she added.
