Following the horrific massacre of 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, details emerging about the shooter reveal he was an anti-Semite extremist who hated Donald Trump.

The attack has, so far, left 11 people dead and many more injured after the gunman opened fire while yelling “all Jews need to die” at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh.

After authorities named the alleged shooter as 46-year-old Robert Bowers, his social media posts show a history of anti-Semitic content and attacks on President Trump.

The bio on one of his now-suspended accounts read: "Jews are the children of Satan."

Before the attack on Saturday morning, Bower criticized refugee aid group Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) and said he couldn't "sit by and watch my people get slaughtered".

"Screw your optics, I'm going in," he wrote in his final post.

In his earlier posts, he attacked Trump and his "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) slogan, as well as the Jewish community.

"Trump is a globalist, not a nationalist," he posted.

"There is no #MAGA as long as there is a kike infestation."

In another post, he said: "For the record, I did not vote for him [Trump] nor have I owned, worn or even touched a MAGA hat."

While it’s early in the investigation, Bowers online rhetoric shows he was obviously motivated by his disgusting anti-Semitism and little more.

Any attempts by the left or the liberal media to blame this horrific tragedy on Trump, or to brand the gunman the "MAGA Shooter," would be fundamentally dishonest.

Bowers faces 29 charges in all, including 11 counts of using a firearm to commit murder and multiple counts of two hate crimes: obstruction of exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death and obstruction of exercise of religious beliefs resulting in bodily injury to a public safety officer.

"The crimes of violence are based upon the federal civil rights laws prohibiting hate crimes," US Attorney Scott W. Brady and Bob Jones, FBI special agent in charge of Pittsburgh office, said in a statement.
