Hate crimes committed by Trump supporters are on the rise as the election (November 6) draws near. A white man in his 40s opened fire Saturday (local time) at a synagogue in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in the U.S., killing 11 people and injuring six others including four policemen.

The suspect had a social network account which had postings supporting Donald Trump. It is another disaster caused by Trump supporters, which happened only a day after the “bomb package” terror targeted those who have the opposite political stance from Trump.

Trump said Saturday that he would not condone anti-Semitism, which is full of hatred. It is said that Trump’s remarks provoking social division had something to do with the hate crimes, and it would be an unfavorable factor for the Republican Party at the election in November.
