Congressman Keith Rothfus (PA-12) issued the following statement after meeting with President and Mrs. Trump and Jared and Ivanka Kushner after they visited the Tree of Life Synagogue and the victims recovering at Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh.

"Everyone should be given the space to grapple with this tragedy in a manner that allows them to heal.
