President Trump Heads To Pittsburgh, Video Of Woman Set On Fire In DC Goes Public

President Trump heads to Pittsburgh…

President Trump and the first lady are due in Pittsburgh this afternoon to pay their respect to first responder’s and survivors of the Synagogue shootings.

Three of the Eleven victims shot at the Tree of Life Synagogue will be laid to rest today. There was some concern about the Presidents visit with one Jewish organization saying they did not want him to come until he publicly denounced white supremacists. The Mayor of Pittsburgh has asked Trump to wait a week and let the families bury their loved ones and begin healing before coming to town. The Rabbi of the synagogue says he is welcomed.

The accused shooter Robert Bowers made his first court appearance yesterday. He remains in jail until his next preliminary hearing next week.
