President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump want to meet the families of the victims of the Tree of Life mass killing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced on Monday.

"It was an act of hatred and above all, it was an act of evil", Sanders said, adding that the president "cherishes the American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country".

Sanders began the briefing with a note about the 11 people who died at Tree of Life Congregation.

It continues the circular pattern of critics condemning Trump's incitement of anger toward the media and other figures, which will only make Trump double down more on those attacks.

In response, a group of Pittsburgh's Jewish leaders wrote an open letter to the president, saying he was "not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully denounce white nationalism".

It was just last week that President Trump referred to himself as a "nationalist", which angered a lot of people and organizations who have condemned white nationalism since the attacks in Charlottesville past year. Trump has labeled a long list of media outlets "fake news" and often applies the moniker to stories he doesn't like.

President Trump will visit Pittsburgh on Tuesday to show support for victims of the city's deadly synagogue shooting.

"I think it's irresponsible for an outlet like yours to blame responsibility of a pipe bomb that was not sent by the president. for those heinous acts - I think that is outrageous and irresponsible", she replied.


"He's also harshly attacked some of the very people that received those pipe bombs, and this morning suggesting that the news media is responsible for the anger in the country", Karl said.

Last week, as packages with explosives were sent to top Democrats, some conservative commentators on US radio and television shows suggested it was a "false flag" operation being carried out by left-wing opponents of Trump looking to gain a political advantage before next week's national congressional elections.

"Time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions", the lawmakers said.

President Trump is denying allegations he referred to the media as the enemy of the people.

President Donald Trump clarified his stance as to what media he regards to be "enemy of the people" - but the clarification differs negligibly from the commonly reported definition. "The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News".

City and civic officials said early Monday they were unaware of the details of the planned visits. "Blowback from his words came and cost people's lives, and we said enough is enough". Scott Brady, the USA attorney for the western district of Pennsylvania is awaiting approval from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to peruse a capital punishment case.

"I don't know why he thinks the Jews are responsible for all the ills in the world, but he's not the first and he won't be the last", Mr Werber told AP news agency.
