Trump renews his attack on media after mass shooting

01 November 2018

But the attacks on the eve of the mid-term elections have prompted questions about whether he should tone down his rhetoric.

Monday's briefing comes at a fraught time for Trump, who is facing criticism over his heated political attacks in the wake of last week's bomb scare involving prominent Democrats and a mass shooting on Saturday at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Trump, in a late-night tweet, singled out the media outlet CNN in particular.

Trump strongly condemned the Pittsburgh attack as an act of anti-Semitism and has denounced political violence and called for unity.

The White House has pushed back against the suggestion Trump should change course. Sanders said Trump would go "to express the support of the American people and to grieve with the Pittsburgh community".

The two had a costly collision in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix that knocked both cars out of the race. "Everything feels hopeless. Vettel broke off from a television interview to congratulate Hamilton on his fifth title and fourth in the last five years.

The White House on Monday did not immediately provide further details on Trump's trip to Pennsylvania, which drew mixed reactions in Pittsburgh.

However, Jeffrey Myers, a Tree of Life rabbi who was in the synagogue when the heavily armed gunman burst in on worshippers, said Trump would be welcome if he visited. I am a citizen. He is my president.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, a Democrat, told reporters ahead of the announcement that the White House should consult with the families of the victims about their preferences and asked that the president not come during a funeral. "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.

Sanders also used her press conference to complain about what she said was nearly constantly critical media coverage.

She added: "Some individuals - they're grieving, they're hurting". Not just on the president, but everybody that works in this administration.

For example, Bowers had reportedly referred on social media to anger at a group of several thousand impoverished Central Americans now attempting to walk north to the United States - a favorite target of the president's anti-immigrant rhetoric. Last week, the NY offices of CNN, the cable network frequently criticized by Trump and his supporters, was evacuated after receiving an explosive device and an envelope containing white powder.

She said it was irresponsible to blame the president for the package bombs or the Synagogue shootout.

The president has continued to take the offensive on social media ahead of the November 6 midterm elections while striking a somewhat more conciliatory tone during political rallies. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

Trump has repeatedly blamed the media and what he calls "fake news" reporting for Saturday's massacre.

Bowers' shooting spree came in the same week that authorities arrested a Florida man - an ardent Trump supporter - on suspicion of mailing more than a dozen homemade bombs to opponents and critics of the president.
