Trump Boasts About ‘Great Respect’ Shown to Him in Pittsburgh

Donald Trump has boasted about being treated “very nicely” and with “great respect” by the people of Pittsburgh while attempting to dismiss the protests that greeted him Tuesday as “fake news.” Demonstrators filled several blocks during Trump’s visit to the Tree of Life synagogue, where a gunman killed 11 people Saturday in the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history. In a Wednesday morning tweet about his visit, Trump insisted he got a warm reception, failed to mention the 11 victims, and then went on to attack the media for reporting on the protests that happened. “Melania and I were treated very nicely yesterday in Pittsburgh,” he wrote. “The Office of the President was shown great respect on a very sad & solemn day. We were treated so warmly. Small protest was not seen by us, staged far away. The Fake News stories were just the opposite-Disgraceful!”
