Vastavam web: U.S. President Donald Trump, shrugging off thousands who protested his visit as unwelcome, offered condolences on Tuesday at the Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 Jewish worshippers were shot to death during Sabbath prayers. The presidential visit, which sources said congressional leaders of both parties declined to join, came as thousands of mourners attended the first funerals for victims of Saturday’s massacre, the deadliest attack ever on American Jewry.
They were greeted by Rabbi Jeffrey Myers, who led them inside the temple where they lighted candles for the victims. Emerging about 18 minutes later, the couple walked to a memorial outside the building, where the first lady placed a flower and the president placed a small stone on a marker for each of the dead. Trump’s motorcade left after about 30 minutes at the synagogue, with the president making no public remarks. One group of demonstrators chanted, “President hate, leave our state,” while others yelled, “Words have meaning.”
