Police respond to an active-shooter situation at the Tree of Life synagogue

Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett will hold an "emergency meeting" with senior American Jewish leaders on Tuesday, to discuss how Israel can assist the Jewish community following Saturday's devastating terror attack in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, an official in the U.S. said Monday.

Despite these factors, at a tense White House press briefing Sarah Sanders told reporters on Monday afternoon that the president intends to make the trip along with his wife, Melania Trump, to express the support of the American people and grieve with the local community.

She reiterated Trump's claims that the media is responsible for the nation's divided political climate.

In addition to Peduto's suggestion to choose another day, Trump also faces opposition from more than 30,000 people who have signed an open letter saying that the president will not be welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism and stops "targeting" minorities. "We've been here 154 years and you can cut off some branches, but the tree will continue to grow, and we will be back". "I'm doing it here today".

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said the controversial visit would have to be up the families of the victims.

"The president cherishes the American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country", Sanders said. "The rabbi said that he is welcome as well".

The president of the hospital where a wounded Bowers was taken said that he was ranting against Jews even as Jewish staff members were treating him.

Oreo grows in October 2018 Android distribution numbers
If you haven't noticed, most of the new releases for the past couple of months come with Android 8.1 or 8.0 Oreo out of the box. It raises concerns as to whether Google has failed to deliver on the promise of timely software updates with Project Treble.

She added: "It's outrageous that that would be the very first reaction of so many people across this country". "The very first thing the media did was condemn the president and go after and try to place blame not just on the president but everybody that works in this administration". The president is the grandfather of several Jewish grandchildren. "His daughter is a Jewish-American and his son-in-law is a descendant of Holocaust survivors".

Suspect Robert Bowers faces 11 counts of obstruction of religious beliefs resulting in death, 11 counts of use of a firearm to commit murder, four counts of obstruction religious beliefs resulting in bodily injury and three counts of use of a firearm during a violent crime.

Federal prosecutors are considering seeking the death penalty against the suspect.

Hundreds gather in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh Saturday to take part in the candlelight vigil to remember 11 people who were killed in a shooting attack.

Bowers shot his victims with an AR-15 and three Glock handguns, all of which he owned legally and had a license to carry, the Associated Press reported.

A hospital spokeswoman said Monday Bowers was discharged from Allegheny General Hospital and remanded to police custody.
