Trump says Pittsburgh attack lays bare ‘hate’ in US

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — President Donald Trump on Saturday lamented the “devastating” attack by a shooter on a Pittsburgh synagogue, saying it lays bare the “hate in our country” and speculating that the death toll — ” a lot of people killed” — would have been curbed if the building had had an armed guard. With both the number of deaths and details of the synagogue’s security still to be disclosed, Trump said gun control “has little to do with it” but “if they had protection inside, the results would have been far better.” Trump responded before boarding Air Force One for a speech in Indiana and commented upon his arrival.
