Pittsburgh synagogue shooting suspect pleads not guilty

Trump and the first lady intend to travel to Pittsburgh at some point on Tuesday.

Hundreds of protesters gathered on the street chanting slogans against the president.

Donald Trump on Tuesday visited the Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 people were gunned down at the weekend in an anti-Semitic attack, as more than 1,000 protesters gathered nearby to make it clear the U.S. president was unwelcome.

At a makeshift memorial of Jewish stars outside the synagogue, the Trumps are placing lay white roses and a stone from the White House for each of the dead.

The Pittsburgh massacre has fuelled a debate over US President Donald Trump's rhetoric and his self-identification as a "nationalist", which critics say has led to a surge in right-wing extremism and may have helped provoke the synagogue bloodshed.

There were people who weren't against the President's visit.

Residents are divided. For Marianne Novy, Trump isn't wanted "unless he really changes his ways".

Before that, he criticized Trump, saying he's a "globalist" and isn't "winning".

Novy, 73, a retired college English professor, said she signed an open letter asking Trump not to come to Pittsburgh.

In a tweet, Trump also suggested that he was the victim, calling news reports about the protests "disgraceful" and claiming that the "small protest was not seen by us, staged far away".




Gottfried, a dentist, had reconnected with his faith following his father's death and at one point became the president of the 70-member congregation in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

They held signs with such slogans as "We build bridges not walls"; "Trump, Renounce White Nationalism Now"; and "Trump's lies kill".

The US president has repeatedly used terms, such as "globalist", which has a historic anti-Semitic connotation and has indulged in conspiracy theories that originated in white supremacist circles, such as his unfounded claim that George Soros was funding protesters against his Supreme Court pick.

Earlier on Tuesday, mourners paid their respects to four victims of the massacre.

They buried the Rosenthal brothers, David and Cecil, who were "innocent, pure souls" and "gentle giants" with no ill will, their kin said.

During a packed prayer service for the siblings, Rabbi Myers said: "They could illustrate a dictionary definition for "pure souls". Services were held Wednesday for Joyce Fienberg, Melvin Wax and Irving Younger.

Support for the community has been pouring in from across the country.

Brady said that "Today begins the process of seeking justice for the victims of these hateful acts, and healing for the victims' families, the Jewish community, and our city".

He was taken into custody after being wounded in a shootout with police and transferred to a local hospital.
