A group of Jewish leaders told President Trump that he is no longer welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism following the shooting at a synagogue there over the weekend. Eleven members of the Pittsburgh affiliate of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice penned a letter to Trump following the Saturday shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

Lets do a survey. Make a guess:
1. Trump doesn't respond.
2. Trump whines that their request is unfair, blames media.
3. Trump condemns the violence but not white nationalism.
4. Trump mans up and does the decent thing and condemns white supremacy hate and violence.

5. Trump mans up and does the decent thing and condemns white supremacy hate and violence, but then goes out the next day and retweets a white supremacist and/or says a bunch of crap that undercuts what he said the day before.

Trump is not going to condemn white supremacy, and he is not going to denounce Nationalism ... it's that simple.

America is the Titanic, and Trump is the captain ... we're all going to either sink like a torpedoed row boat or people will take to the streets to protest.

Labeling people who do crime is the dumbest thing that can be done and only enables race lines to be drawn. In fact, in the 21st century it has now allowed groups to be labelled based on the very tiny majority of their people!! Not all Muslims are terrorists, in fact most aren't...but that doesn't stop people from equating terrorism to Muslim. Not all black people are murderers, in fact most aren't...but that doesn't change the fact that blacks have a murder rate twice that of whites.

Anyone who says a President needs to group together a race in terms of the violence they enact needs to understand the can of worms they are opening. I know logic has no place in 21st century political parties but that doesn't get rid of it. The fact remains that labelling a group of people as "white" is harmful. Sure, it's the trendy thing to do today because Liberals hate white men, but there will come a time when white people aren't the majority anymore...and then who do you blame all your problems on? Pointing fingers only works when there is someone other than yourself around to point at.

A decent president would attend temple to show his respect and solidarity for the Jewish victims of this hideous massacre.

Trump hasn't. He needs a certain White voting bloc too much.

‘Leaders of a group of Jews' is a more appropriate way to put this.

P.S. not a lot of Jews I know can stand SJW types. Especially Jewish ones.

except them Gay Liberals because they obviously LOVE Men! wink wink nudge! nudge!

but there will come a time when white people aren't the majority anymore...and then who do you blame all your problems on?

Soon we won't be able to kick them white people around anymore! Yay!

"White people" (there is no such race) had their turn ruling the world.

Are you happy with the results so far? Me either. There is one constant in Life brother, change.

Get used to it. I suspect it will only be increasing exponentially as we approach the Singularity.

Donald Trump is a pandering president. You have that entirely right.

I've been watching him pander to fascists for three years now.

Hey, guess what? Donald thinks he can amend the Constitution by Executive Order.

So don't tell me the SOB isn't a fascist, serving fascists.

Trump's motorcade forced to turn around after thousands of protesters flood Pittsburgh streets

On Tuesday, despite people's wishes, President Donald Trump traveled to Pittsburgh to pay his respects to the lives lost in the Synagogue massacre.

During CNN's Jake Tapper Tuesday show, national correspondent Miguel Marquez said that he was shocked at how ‘how big' and ‘how quickly' the protest against Trump's visit grew.

‘It's a huge embarrassment': Trump visit rejected by Pittsburgh after synagogue massacre

Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker told MSNBC Tuesday that the near total rejection of Trump's visit to Pittsburgh in the wake of the Tree of Life synagogue massacre is a "huge embarrassment" to the president, who he said was likely well-aware of the bipartisan snub.

"It's a huge embarrassment for the president of the United States to be going to Pittsburgh this afternoon and not be greeted by the mayor, not be greeted by the governor, not be greeted by the key local officials who are attending to this tragedy in their own city," Rucker said.

Tweet from Howard Fineman:

"Further: @realDonaldTrump WH called the top #PA and #Pittsburgh officials one at a time and lied to each that the others had agreed. WH did the same to #Schumer and #Pelosi. No one bit. WH also trying to push #Trump into hospital rooms of victims but most want no part of him."

Is melania wearing her "I really don't care, do you?" jacket?

It was great seeing Jared and Ivanka. They really seem like a great couple. Better than Chelsea Clinton and whatever doormat she married.

That's clever, but way too long for trump voters to read.

They needs something that can fit on a hat and be understood by a 2nd grader.

Yellow Journalism. The color of this site is just right.

You left out "Progressive" in front of the headline. Liberals. Duh!

I'm sure Trump read that and turned Air Force One around. Hahaha.

Howard Fineman @howardfineman

Just checked with sources in #Pittsburgh: the mayor, county executive and governor will NOT accompany or meet with @realDonaldTrump as he and Melania visit the city as families bury their dead after the #TreeofLife massacre. The WH tried to force officials hand with false leaks.

Further: @realDonaldTrump WH called the top #PA and #Pittsburgh officials one at a time and lied to each that the others had agreed. WH did the same to #Schumer and #Pelosi. No one bit. WH also trying to push #Trump into hospital rooms of victims but most want no part of him.
