Then, a final thought: "Fake News Must End!" In a response to questions from Democrats in Congress previous year, FCC chairman Ajit Pai said that he did not agree that the media was the "enemy of the people", but also noted that Trump was referring to the "fake news" media.
After a week that included shootings at a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Kentucky grocery store and multiple pipe bombs being sent to President Trump's critics, the White House is continuing to insist that any division in America is the media's fault.
"We will come together Tuesday to honor those who lost their lives on Saturday and to condemn all acts of hateful violence", Schapira said in a press release.
If the president still decides to visit Pittsburgh without meeting the letter's demands, Friedman said he expects Trump will "only be met with derision".
The White House did not immediately provide further details on Trump's trip, which drew mixed reactions in Pittsburgh.
Officials say Robert Bowers was armed with a rifle and three handguns when he walked inside the Tree of Life synagogue during Sabbath services Saturday morning and opened fire, killing 11 people and wounding six in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in us history.
"I am a citizen and he is my president", Myers said, responding in the affirmative. He is my president.
The man accused of killing 11 worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue has been discharged from a hospital and is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday afternoon, officials said.
On Sunday, Friedman read the letter, which is also signed by the group's other 10 leaders, aloud in front of the White House during an afternoon vigil organized by Bend the Arc. The media, she said, has "a huge responsibility to play in the divisive nature of the country". "Our hearts are with the four courageous police officers who were shot and injured while trying to stop the attack", she added.
In a voice breaking with emotion, Sanders noted that Trump's daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Jewish.
"It does not seem that he is wanted in our city", said Rabbi Keren Gorban of Temple Sinai, which is near the Tree of Life synagogue where 11 people were shot to death in a rampage.
Trump strongly condemned the Pittsburgh attack as an act of anti-Semitism and has denounced political violence and called for unity. Last week, the NY offices of CNN, the cable network frequently attacked by Trump and his supporters, was evacuated after receiving an explosive device and an envelope containing white powder.
Once Trump has ventured off those written statements at unscripted campaign rallies in recent days, however, at a Friday night rally in Charlotte he returned to his sharp pre-midterms lines about Democrats, painting a bleak picture of what he wants his base to believe they would do if they can win control of the House or Senate - or both. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.
Last week, a South Florida man who has been a fervent Trump supporter, Cesar Sayoc, was charged with mailing more than a dozen pipe bombs to people and organizations that Trump has criticized.
