‘Huge Embarrassment’ Trump Is Greeted By Protestors As He Makes Visit To Pittsburgh Following Synagogue Massacre
Donald Trump made his way to Pittsburgh on Tuesday in the wake of the Tree of Life synagogue massacre that happened over the weekend. But he wasn’t greeted as he thought he would be as the governor and key local officials did not tend to the president.
Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker told MSNBC that Trump’s visit to Pittsburgh is a “huge embarrassment” to the president.
“It’s a huge embarrassment for the president of the United States to be going to Pittsburgh this afternoon and not be greeted by the mayor, not be greeted by the governor, not be greeted by the key local officials who are attending to this tragedy in their own city,” Rucker said.
Rucker pointed out that this is a slap to the face for Trump as he has an obsession with being “greeted with respect,” despite never giving it back himself.
“He made such a big deal about President Obama going overseas when sometimes the red carpet wasn’t rolled out to him,” Rucker said. “He’s now going to Pittsburgh without any carpet at all.”
