“Anti-Semitism cannot be allowed to continue. It must be confronted wherever it raises its ugly head. We must all join our Jewish brothers and sisters after this wicked and evil crime.” said US President Donald Trump after the mass shooting at the Pittsburgh Squirrel Hill synagogue and 11 deaths. “Through the centuries the Jews have suffered horrible persecution. Those who seek their destruction, we will seek theirs.” Trump called for the death penalty to be brought back, “We must draw lines in the sand and say strongly ‘Never again!’” The US president ordered flags on all public buildings lowered to half-mast for three days.
