President Donald Trump on Monday heaped praise on Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, the Chabad rabbi hit by a shooting attack on Shabbos, following a phone call in which the President offered his condolences for the death of Lori Gilbert-Kaye, a veteran member of the community.
“I spoke at length yesterday to Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, Chabad of Poway, where I extended my warmest condolences to him and all affected by the shooting in California,” the president tweeted Monday. “What a great guy. He had a least one finger blown off, and all he wanted to do is help others. Very special!”
