The election season violence rattled a divided nation and prompted questions about whether Trump should tone done his rhetoric.

President Donald Trump on Monday accused the media of being "the true Enemy of the People" in the wake of a mass shooting and a mail bomb plot.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is accusing the media of wrongly blaming President Donald Trump for a mail bomb plot and a deadly weekend shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue. "The very first thing the media did was blame the president and make him responsible for these ridiculous acts".

Conservative writer Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post argued Tuesday that Sanders' performance, claiming that Trump doesn't call the whole media the "enemy of the people" even as he constantly derides the establishment with an extremely broad brush, should inspire reporters to abandon the briefing entirely.

She later declined a request from CNN's Jim Acosta to name media organizations that Trump considers "enemies of the people".

In an open letter Sunday, a group of Jewish leaders from Pittsburgh said Trump bore responsibility for encouraging white nationalist sentiments that led to the synagogue attack. "I think they're giving too much credit there and there's too much partisanship in that regard", Adam said.

Trump has said he will travel to Pittsburgh, but the White House has not offered any details on his plans.


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". I am a citizen.

The White House did not immediately respond to the mayor's request. "Our attention and our focus is going to be on them, and we don't have public safety that we can take away from what is needed in order to do both", Peduto said. "She has admitted it's a smear (only some of them are enemies!), and yet she propagates an accusation that influenced a bombing attempt against a news outlet and is used as justification for violence against journalists around the world".

"The president's not trying to reach his base by denouncing anti-Semitism and asking everybody to rise above hate, he's being the president of all Americans", Conway said.

With eight days to go before the midterm elections, Trump has continued to hold his political rallies, complete with harsh criticism of Democrats and the media. Last week, the NY offices of CNN, the cable network frequently attacked by Trump and his supporters, was evacuated after receiving an explosive device and an envelope containing white powder. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

"Wrong! I said that the 'Fake News (Media) is the Enemy of the People, ' a very big difference", he said.

Others included ex-vice president Joe Biden, Hollywood star Robert De Niro, billionaire donor George Soros, former CIA director John Brennan, former intelligence chief James Clapper, former attorney general Eric Holder, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, and billionaire investor Tom Steyer.
