Trump to travel to Pennsylvania Tuesday after synagogue shooting

11 victims in Pittsburgh synagogue shooting are identified

Things got testy between White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and CNN's Jim Acosta during Monday's press briefing.

Acosta then asked Sanders if CNN was on the White House's list of "enemies", but she refused to be pinned down.

"We're not here to ask 'Do you have insurance or do you not have insurance?' We're here to take care of people who need our help", he said.

Watch the fiery exchange above.

In addition to Peduto's suggestion to choose another day, Trump also faces opposition from more than 30,000 people who have signed an open letter saying that the president will not be welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism and stops "targeting" minorities.

"We have a very strong leadership in this city, we have a very strong mayor with very strong values, a very strong county executive.we have people who stand by us, who believe in values, not just Jewish values.and those are not the values of this president".

During a rare press briefing, she also called for all Americans to rally around the country's Jewish community. "I immediately wrote to the rest of our steering committee that he is not welcome, we have to make that clear".

Myers statements came after a progressive Jewish group called Bend the Arc released a letter claiming the president wasn't welcome to visit Pittsburgh until he denounced white nationalism.

Everton’s Marco Silva accuses Anthony Martial of diving for penalty
I think the goalkeepers now know his run-up and they don't move, they are waiting until the last second for his decision. Everton had several chances go begging, most notably when Bernard rounded David De Gea only to find the side netting.

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. Hallie Jackson of NBC News (above right) wanted to know.

Jackson was not convinced. "Is he incapable, in the words of some, of "toning it down" and toning down the rhetoric?"

Trump will travel to the southwest Pennsylvania city over the objections of Jewish leaders, who said Sunday he is not welcome due to his sharp rhetoric, which they and other critics say spawns racial and religious emotions that can lead to violence.

"And if anything, I think it is sad and divisive the way that every single thing that comes out of the media ... is negative about this president", Sanders added. "And does he have any concern at all that his words could inspire or provoke troubled people to do very bad things?"

Sanders, noting that some of Trump's own family is Jewish, went on to condemn the mass murder suspect's attack as an "act of hatred" and an "act of evil".

The event, organized by the Jewish Student Association (JSA), featured student speakers and organizers, as well as Rabbi Jessica Kirschner of Hillel, Rabbi Dov Greenberg and President Marc Tessier-Lavigne.

None of the pipe bombs detonated. "That is outrageous that that would be the very first reaction of so many people across this country". "Not just blame the president, but blame members of his administration for those heinous acts. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans".
