Washington: US President Donald Trump has visited the Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 people were killed in an anti-Semitic attack and met the widow of one of the victims and three law enforcement personnel who were injured in the mass shooting that shook the nation.

First Lady Melania Trump accompanied the President. His daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jarred Kushner also travelled with them when they visited the ‘Tree of Life’ synagogue in Pittsburg where the mass shooting took place. The President met Rabbi Myers. While inside the synagogue, the first couple lit candles in honour of each of those killed, the White Hou­se said. Meanwhile, Israel’s envoy to the memorial ceremonies for the shooting victims said it’s “unfair and wrong” to link the tragedy to Trump.
