Pittsburgh shooting: 11 killed, Trump calls for death penalty; top updates”

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news", Trump continued.

So. The reason, according to Donald Trump, that we have "anger" and "Outrage" in this country, and that he is not able to "bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony", is because the media reports fake stories.

The security level for the Australian Jewish community has remain unchanged after the Pittsburg attack that saw 11 people killed in the Tree of Life Synagogue.

Trump since taking office has denigrated the USA media, often singling out CNN, as "fake news" and as recently as August 30 used the phrase "enemy of the people" after the first reports emerged about the content of Bob Woodward's book, "Fear: Trump in the White House", a harrowing account in which the president's aides are constantly putting out fires.

At least 11 people were killed when a gunman entered and opened fire. The violence rattled a deeply divided nation and prompted questions about whether Trump should tone done his rhetoric. "He is certainly welcome", Myers said on CNN.

Gab, a popular site with white nationalists and members of the so-called alt-right, released a statement saying it had "zero tolerance" for violence or terrorism and was "saddened and disgusted by the news" from Pittsburgh.

"All Australians have been shocked by the bad news from Pittsburgh and the evil attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue", he said, adding, "Our hearts go out to those who have lost a loved one and to everyone who shares in their grief, pain and fear today". On Twitter on Sunday, he savaged billionaire businessman Tom Steyer, another target of the mail bombs.

Last week, Trump before the shooting said he would end political violence but pushed back on the notion that he should dial back his own words.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Monday on the "Fox & Friends" program that Trump has attempted to unite the country amid the tensions and those looking to fault Trump need to "cut it out".

"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.

President Trump called the act "evil" but he has consistently refused to condemn white nationalism, racism, or hate of minorities by certain groups. He staged a campaign rally in IL as scheduled.

Throughout his campaign and presidency, Trump has been an unrelenting critic of the media.
