President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will travel to Pittsburgh on Tuesday to support the city after 11 people were shot dead in the worst anti-Semitic attack in recent U.S. history. "President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you stop targeting and endangering all minorities". Sanders responded by saying that Trump wanted people to come together but that he would continue to contrast Democrats and Republicans as the nation approached the midterm elections.
City and civic officials said early Monday they were unaware of the details of the planned visits.
Acosta tried to goad Sanders into stating "for the record" which news outlets and journalists "that you and the president regard as the enemy of the people".
"We will let him know how unhappy we are with his presence, with his lack of leadership", he said.
"It's part of his program to instigate his base, and this base in many cases have the basest feelings in the world", Werber said.
He refuses to acknowledge that-to paraphrase Florida's Andrew Gillum-even if he doesn't think (or want to admit) that he himself is a racist or antisemite or white nationalist, the white nationalists sure do believe he is.

A Pennsylvania prosecutor says he will ask US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to greenlight his request to pursue capital punishment for Robert Bowers, who gunned down worshippers in a Pittsburgh synagogue. "The community would welcome his presence here, because he is our president..."
Political opponents of Trump blame him for the deep divisions in American society, a result of his often acidic rhetoric aimed at opposition Democrats, illegal immigrants, and others opposed to his policies. "This is hate", Myers told Israel's Hadashot TV.
"The president, and especially the White House press secretary, should understand their words matter. Is he incapable, in the words of some, of "toning it down" and toning down the rhetoric?" Hate is not welcome here in Pittsburgh.
The authors of the letter, which was signed by 11 members of Bend the Arc, then went on to explain to the president why he is not welcome in Pittsburgh.
According to a PRRI survey released today, "54 percent of Americans feel President Trump's decisions and behavior have encouraged white supremacist groups, compared to 39 percent who say Trump's behavior has had no effect and five percent who say he has discouraged these groups".
Late Sunday, the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre - the Canadian mosque in which six people were killed in an attack in late January 2017 - also sent a message of support to the Jewish community in Pittsburgh.
