President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump will visit Pennsylvania on Tuesday to commemorate the victims of last week’s mass shooting at Tree of Life synagogue, the White House announced Monday.
At a regular briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the president and first lady will make the visit to “express the support of the American people and grieve with the Pittsburgh community.”
“This atrocity was a chilling act of mass murder. It was an act of hatred and above all, it was an act of evil,” Sanders said, adding that the president “cherishes the American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country.”
