Eleven members of the Pittsburgh branch of the NGO, Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, published a scathing letter to U.S. President Donald Trump denouncing his embrace of white nationalism and launched a petition with a series of demands following the deadly Saturday shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.
The petition which has over eighteen thousand signatures demands “you and the Republican Party: Fully denounce white nationalism, stop targeting and endangering all minorities, cease your assault on immigrants and refugees, and commit yourself to compassionate, democratic policies that recognize the dignity of all of us.”
The letter says that Trump is not welcome in the city until he meets these demands.
