    Jewish leaders tell Trump he's not welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism

    By Morgan Gstalter - 10/28/18 07:01 PM EDT

    A group of Jewish leaders told President Trump that he is no longer welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism following the shooting at a synagogue there over the weekend.

    Eleven members of the Pittsburgh affiliate of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice penned a letter to Trump following the Saturday shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

    “Our Jewish community is not the only group you have targeted,” the group wrote. “You have also deliberately undermined the safety of people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities. Yesterday’s massacre is not the first act of terror you incited against a minority group in our country.”

    Trump was fiercely criticized after he failed to condemn white supremacy and asserted that there is “blame on both sides” after last year’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

    The group also said Trump is not welcome in the city until he also stops targeting minorities, immigrants and refugees.

    The president has “spread lies and sowed fear about migrant families in Central America,” the group wrote.

    “The Torah teaches that every human being is made b’tzelem Elohim, in the image of God. This means all of us,” the leaders wrote. “In our neighbors, Americans, and people worldwide who have reached out to give our community strength, there we find the image of God.”

    They noted how Squirrel Hill, the Pittsburgh neighborhood where the attack took place, was once the neighborhood where children’s television host Fred Rogers lived.

    “Here in Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood, we express gratitude for the first responders and for the outpouring of support from our neighbors near and far,” they wrote.

    Robert Gregory Bowers, 46, has been arrested and charged with the deaths of 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

    The attack on the synagogue is the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history.

    Trump condemned the attack as "an assault on humanity."

    "It will require all of us working together to extract the hateful poison of anti-Semitism from our world. This was an anti-Semitic attack at its worst," Trump said during a rally Saturday night.

    He condemned the gunman as a “wacko” who should get the death penalty and suggested that an “armed guard” at the synagogue could have prevented the attack.

    The president, however, was criticized on social media Saturday night for tweeting about the World Series game shortly after the shooting took place.

    Crazy DemoQuacks who happen to be Jewish. Do they not know how many votes their comments just won .... for Trump and the Republicans??!!! Do they not understand that their politics of open borders and pro-immigration and refugees and migrants is what Trump and the Republicans are running against??!!

    Who anointed these folks as Kings, Queens, and the ruling class of Pittsburgh? Nobody gets to tell the President of the United States which state, city, county, or region of the country he can visit!

    A special interest group like this does not represent the whole of Pittsburgh or Pennsylvania.

    This is so sad. Trump did not have anything to do with this, and the shooter is a crazy democrat. These idiots are not going to be accepting of a darn thing Trump says or does, no matter how PC it might be.

    I have heard that one of the victims was a Holocaust survivor.
