Protesters jeer Trump in Pittsburgh

President Donald Trump's White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, second from left, stand at a memorial for those killed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Oct. 30, 2018.

Many in the crowd were too emotional to speak to the press.

"My words are not intended as political", he said from the stage.

The caravans are a favourite target of the President, and he has called a group of several thousand impoverished mainly Honduran migrants now attempting to walk north to the United States "an invasion".

"What happened yesterday will not break us. We will continue to thrive and sing and worship and learn together and continue our historic legacy in the city with the friendliest people that I know", said Rabbi Jonathan Perlman, choking back tears.

Suspect Robert Bowers is facing more than two dozen charges related to the bloodshed at the Tree of Life, which is located in the city's traditionally Jewish Squirrel Hill neighbourhood. They next went to the UPMC Presbyterian hospital, where Trump was scheduled to greet hospital staffers who treated the wounded, and the four wounded officers, along with their family and friends. Two of the surviving victims remained hospitalized in critical condition.

Hetfield said the refugee community has offered any support they can to the Jewish community - money, food, anything at all.

Democratic Mayor Bill Peduto had asked Trump not to come while the city was burying its dead.

"But here's another thing about Pittsburgh".

"There's always going to be anti-Semitism, there always has been, but never have we had a president of this country who does not fight hard against it, verbally and in every way", she said. We will defeat hate with love.

"I personally hold Trump and his rhetoric accountable for the tragedy that occurred", she said.

Trump to visit Pittsburgh after synagogue massacre
CNN President Jeff Zucker said another suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted Monday at an Atlanta post office. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

Officials released the names of all 11 victims during a news conference Sunday, all of them middle-aged or elderly. The eldest victim was Rose Mallinger, 97.

A private funeral was also held for Stein, the 71-year-old men's club president at Tree of Life.

Five of the dead lived in Squirrel Hill, a quiet, leafy district with a large Jewish population. "As a community we need to step up when it comes to the idea of security in our building", said Pilkin.

Since his 2016 Republican campaign for the White House, Trump has at times been slow to denounce white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other hate-filled individuals and groups that found common cause with his nationalistic political rhetoric.

Trump, who quickly branded Saturday's shooting an act of pure evil and called on Americans to rise above hatred, was already facing similar criticism ahead of November 6 congressional elections following pipe bombs mailed last week to some of his most prominent critics.

Another Squirrel Hill resident, Shayna Marcus, who had hoped to catch the presidential motorcade with her young sons but just missed it, said the anger at Trump is misplaced. The family said it felt Trump's statement suggesting that an armed guard stationed at the synagogue might have prevented the attack was inappropriate.

Noah described the caravan of migrants walking to the USA from Honduras and Guatemala, "partly as a protest, and partly to apply for asylum and a better life", as "basically like Burning Man, except that the people aren't pretending to be poor". Two police vehicles were posted at a side door and two at the main entrance.

He has been charged with 29 federal felony counts, including hate crimes, and could face the death penalty if convicted.

Bowers' virulent anti-Semitic views were evident in prolific online postings. Minutes before the shooting, Bowers allegedly wrote on his Gab page, "HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people". I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. "I'm sick and exhausted of what's going on".

On Monday, a US magistrate judge ordered the synagogue shooting suspect, Mr. Bowers, held without bond.
