President Obama’s motorcade passed through 23rd Street in New York, the location of the Motzoei Shabbos bombing, and slept in Manhattan Sunday night — but he still hasn’t made any public remarks on the attack in Chelsea, reports Daniel Halper for the NY Post.
Obama’s first stop in New York City was at the Gramercy Park home of restaurateur Danny Meyer to attend a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Obama talked about the importance of this election and discussed why he believes Clinton is failing to run away with it.
Obama, Halper reports, did not publicly mention the Chelsea blast, the St. Cloud, Minnesota, mall attack or the New Jersey bombings during a Marine Corps charity run.
