President Trump is in Pittsburgh today to honor the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting.

He is expected to head to the hospital later today but arrived at the Tree of Life Synagogue around 4:45 p.m.

His plane had  landed at the Pittsburgh International Airport around 4 p.m. He was met by protesters as controversy surrounded his visit today largely due to funerals for three of the shooting victims beginning this morning.

Mourners including Pittsburgh Steelers were lined up outside Rodef Shalom Temple for the visitation and funeral for brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal. The brothers were fixtures at the Tree of Life temple, always greeting others and passing out books.

Today, mourners also visited the Pittsburgh Jewish Community Center for the funeral of Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz. He was a primary care physician in the area for many years.
