Leaders from the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh deny that President Joe Biden visited following a tragic shooting that occurred in 2018.
The tragic even included the deaths of 11 people killed by a single shooter.
“I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them,” Biden said during a virtual meeting this week, according to the New York Post.
“Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack,” the report added.

Instead, CNN reported in 2018 that Rabbi Jeffrey Myers was surprised as then-President Donald Trump’s visit. ““I was pleasantly surprised by a warm and personal side to the President that I don’t think America has ever seen,” he said.
“Then-President Donald Trump and several top Jewish advisers including daughter Ivanka Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin visited the synagogue three days after the deadliest single attack on Jews in U.S. history,” the Washington Times reported.
The White House has not yet responded with a comment on the matter.
