WASHINGTON – Tragedies like the massacre that took place in a Pittsburgh synagogue over the weekend usually move people to put politics aside.

But as President Donald Trump touched down Tuesday in a city still reeling from the most deadly anti-Semitic attack in American history, he was greeted by hundreds of protesters singing softly in Hebrew or holding signs – underscoring how controversy tends to follow Trump even on the most solemn of occasions.
