President Donald Trump will visit Pittsburgh in wake of synagogue shooting

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news", Trump tweeted. "In 20+ years as a USMC, Pentagon and DHS spokesman, I dealt w/ the news media almost every day".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, giving her first on-camera press briefing since October 3, attacked the media and claimed that her boss, President Donald Trump, was blamed both for Saturday's massacre in Pittsburgh and the pipe bombs that have been mailed to Democratic politicians and CNN.

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

"Tomorrow, the president and first lady will travel to Pennsylvania to express the support of the American people and grieve with the Pittsburgh community", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told journalists in Washington.

In an open letter Sunday, a group of Jewish leaders from Pittsburgh said Trump bore responsibility for encouraging white nationalist sentiments that led to the synagogue attack. "I refer to Fake News Media when mentioning Enemy of the People - but dishonest reporters use only the word 'Media.' The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News".

Donald Trump has rejected calls to stay away from Pittsburgh, in the wake of Saturday's synagogue shooting.

"I think the president has had a number of moments of bringing the country together", she said.

CNN President Jeff Zucker said another suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted Monday at an Atlanta post office. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

A presidential visit to the site of a tragedy is not necessarily unusual but in the increasingly febrile atmosphere ahead of the midterms - where opposition Democrats hope to take control of at least one house of Congress - Trump's trip is mired in politics. 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. "I know quite a bit about the press and know this - they are NOT the enemy of the American people".

At a rally Saturday night, Trump was somewhat muted but still offered his standard campaign attack lines, including citing Hillary Clinton and Rep. Maxine Waters, both of whom were targeted in the bomb plot.
