Bowers has been charged with 29 federal counts, and, according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, will most likely face a death penalty.

"We express our deepest grief and solidarity with our Jewish friends around the world after the heinous violence perpetrated against congregants of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh".

U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump on Tuesday traveled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to honour the 11 people which were killed in an attack on a Jewish synagogue. The nurse, whose father is a rabbi, broke down in tears shortly after treating Bowers, Cohen said, adding, "I told him how proud I was".

Mrs. Sanders said that Mr. Trump was no more responsible for these acts than left-wing icon Sen.

ACHIEVA, which operates a community home for disabled individuals in the Pittsburgh area, told reporters that they received no less than three phone communications from an unidentified person who was angry and swearing at those people who answered the phone.

Pittsburgh's mayor Peduto said he was also against Trump's visit because it would coincide with the first funerals - David Rosenthal, 54, and his brother Cecil Rosenthal, 59, are due to be buried on Tuesday.

Bowers was wounded and taken into custody, where other reports say he made similar statements to police.

"Well, I'm just going to pay my respects", Trump told Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham.

Hundreds of people, including politicians and religious leaders joined in solidarity with members of Northeast Ohio's Jewish community to denounce hate and promote peace.

Trump said late Monday he was looking forward to the visit.

"The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country", he said on Twitter.

"Where did I get the strength?"

Bowers, a 46-year-old truck driver, appeared in court Monday where a judge ordered he be held without bail.

Beth Melena, campaign spokeswoman for Wolf, said the governor did not plan to return to Pittsburgh as part of Trump's visit on Tuesday.

Rabbi Josh Brown from Temple Israel said the tragedy at Tree of Life was very real and painful for his Akron congregation.
