President Trump on Sunday spoke with the rabbi injured in the mass shooting targeting the Chabad of Poway synagogue in California to offer his support, the White House said.
Trump spoke by phone with Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein “to offer his comfort and condolences on behalf of the Nation,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement.
“The President expressed his love for the Jewish people and the entire community of Poway. The President also thanked the brave members of law enforcement who acted swiftly, including the off duty border patrol agent who stopped the shooter,” the statement added.
The rabbi confirmed the call to reporters earlier Sunday, saying Trump spoke about his love of peace, Israel and Judaism during the conversation.
