President Trump strongly condemned the shooting of innocent Jewish people at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, calling it an act of pure evil. His remarks were somber and appropriate. The shooting took the lives of 11 people. Absolutely horrific.

TRUMP: ‘EXTRACT THE POISON OF ANTISEMITISM FROM OUR WORLD’
US President Donald Trump unequivocally condemned the mass shooting of Jews at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, characterizing antisemitic violence amounted to an “assault on humanity.”
His remarks, at a rally and on Twitter, were the strongest yet on the slaughter at the Tree of Life Synagogue– and more broadly on the scourge of antisemitism, a subject on which he has been accused of being soft from political critics and civil rights organizations.
“All of America is in mourning over the mass murder of Jewish Americans at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. We pray for those who perished and their loved ones, and our hearts go out to the brave police officers who sustained serious injuries,” he wrote.
“This evil Anti-Semitic attack is an assault on humanity,” he continued. “It will take all of us working together to extract the poison of Anti-Semitism from our world. We must unite to conquer hate.”
