INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump called a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday a wicked act of mass murder and pure evil and called on Americans to rise above hate and move past divisions.

Trump said at the start of a speech to the Future Farmers of America youth organisation in Indianapolis that anti-Semitism “must be condemned and confronted everywhere and anywhere it appears.”

(The story corrects second paragraph to say that Trump was speaking to youth organisation, not campaign rally)
