Trump Browbeats Synagogue For Not Having Armed Guards After Mass Shooting: ‘Results Could Have Been Better’

On Saturday, following the horrific shooting in Squirrel Hill ( a small Jewish suburb of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania) which reportedly left eight dead and six others injured including four police officers, President Donald Trump had an opportunity to show Americans real leadership after the most recent national tragedy related to gun violence. And he didn’t dissapoint…the National Rifle Association.

“The results could have been much better,” if armed guards had been present President Trump told reporters as he headed to a campaign rally, one of two he will hold Saturday.

The gunman, who’s now in police custody reportedly yelled “all Jews must die” while he shot down his victims.

“This has little to do” with gun laws, Trump told reporters when asked, saying the synagogue should have had “protection inside.”

Trump took the opportunity to promote the death penalty, saying, “We should bring the death penalty into vogue.”

“It’s a terrible, terrible thing what’s going on with hate,” he said.

“Something has to be done,” Trump added. “The world is a violent world.”
