Instead of maintaining the proper solemnity and dignity required of the occasion, NBC News reports that on Saturday, just hours after the shooting, the president "mused about the state of his hair, took light swipes at two of his favorite Democratic targets and lamented that he likely won't win the Nobel Peace Prize" in several exchanges with reporters and at a Future Farmers of America conference in Indianapolis.

Sanders also used her press conference to complain about what she said was nearly constantly critical media coverage.

"No, the president's not placing blame", Sanders said.

US President Donald Trump is unable to participate as Chief Guest of India's Republic Day celebrations next year due to scheduling constraints, the White House has said.

An exasperated Sanders pointed out that 90 percent of the coverage of Trump has been negative - and she repeated that CNN and other media organizations immediately blamed Trump for the violence.

Trump will travel to Pennsylvania on Tuesday with first lady Melania Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on CNN's Jim Acosta during her daily briefing Monday; saying it's "irresponsible" to attribute last week's string of unsafe "pipe bombs" on the Trump administration.

"You yourself called the murderer evil, but yesterday's violence is the direct culmination of your influence", members of Bend The Arc wrote in a letter to Trump. She said it was irresponsible to blame the president for the package bombs or the Synagogue shootout. "He is certainly welcome".

The fire then worked its way up into the attic and second floor of the home, causing about US$10,000 (NZ$15,351) in damage. The Fresno City firefighters' account tweeted a message to their residents to further avoid such a freaky incident.

Sanders shut down the CNN reporter's request, spurring Acosta to ask her whether the "fake news" list includes "my outlet, which received the bomb last week?" He said the city did not have enough public safety officials "to provide enough protection at the funerals and to be able, at the same time, draw attention away to a potential presidential visit".

US President Donald Trump has been asked to denounce white nationalism.

"I think those individuals probably know they are", she said.

"The president cherishes the American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country", Sanders said. "The rabbi said that he is welcome as well".

In a Monday evening tweet, the president argued that he has not referred to all media as "enemy of the people", but rather, the "Fake News (Media)". Last week, the NY offices of CNN, the cable network frequently attacked by Trump and his supporters, was evacuated after receiving an explosive device and an envelope containing white powder. Zucker announced that there was no imminent danger to the CNN Center. Sanders responded by saying that Trump wanted people to come together but that he would continue to contrast Democrats and Republicans as the nation approached the midterm elections. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

President Trump sent out a couple of tweets Monday pushing back on the idea that he's called the media the "enemy of the people".
