"The American people reject hatred, bigotry, prejudice and violence. We are a nation that believes in religious liberty, tolerance and respect,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday at the White House, choking back tears. “Tomorrow the president and first lady will travel to Pennsylvania to express the support of the American people and grieve with the Pittsburgh community.”

Flags at the White House have been lowered to half-staff in honor of the victims.

Meanwhile, the Department of Justice is weighing the death penalty for the man who killed 11 people while they prayed on Shabbat. He has been charged with 29-federal counts of hate crimes, murder and other charges.

"The tragic attack at the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue two days ago serves as a stark reminder of the need to protect all Americans against hate crimes. In mourning the victims today, we also commit ourselves to preventing future attacks. As President Donald Trump said in condemning the crime, “there must be no tolerance for anti-Semitism in America," Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said during a law enforcement round table Monday. "Within a few hours of the tragedy on Saturday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the filing of federal criminal charges. He reiterated that '[h]atred and violence on the basis of religion can have no place in our society.'"
