The president’s visit to Pittsburgh comes in spite of protest from the city’s mayor and jewish leaders there.
In an interview with CNN, Democratic Mayor Bill Peduto said that days after the shooting is not the time for Mr Trump to visit his grieving city.
“I do believe that it would be best to put the attention on families this week and if he were to visit, choose a different time to do it,” Mr Peduto said.
Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh associated with the progressive group Bend the Arc took a bit more biting of an approach to their calls for the president not to visit in a recent op-ed, however.
“President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully denounce white nationalism”, the letter reads. “Our Jewish community is not the only group you have targeted. You have also deliberately undermined the safety of people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities”.
