Trump, first lady to visit Pittsburgh Tuesday following synagogue shooting

Bowers shot his victims with an AR-15, used in numerous nation's mass shootings, and three handguns, all of which he owned legally and had a license to carry, according to a law enforcement official who wasn't authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

In remarks to reporters Monday afternoon, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto asked the White House to consider "two important factors" before scheduling a visit: the will of the victims' families, and the fact that the city's attention - including the efforts of law enforcement officers - will be focused Tuesday on the victims' funerals, which are likely to begin that day.

The press secretary's voice cracked with emotion as she spoke of how the president "adores" Jewish Americans. "His daughter is a Jewish American and his son-in-law is a descendent a holocaust survivors".

The president of the hospital where a wounded Bowers was taken said that he was ranting against Jews even as Jewish staff members were treating him.

The spokeswoman replied: "The president is not referencing all media, he's talking about the growing amount of fake news that exists in the country, and the president's calling that out". She retorted: "I'm not going to walk through a list but I think those individuals probably know who they are".

Undeterred, Ascota asked if Sanders should "have the guts" to state which outlets and journalists are the enemy. "I just want to kill Jews.' Bowers repeated comments regarding genocide, his desire to kill Jewish people, and that Jewish people needed to die". We did say that he, and you, should understand your words matter. Every single one of them. "But so far, you don't seem to get that".
