Eight were killed and another six injured in Bowers’ attack on Saturday. The shooter was also injured during the attack and soon surrendered to police.

Bowers’ social media depicts a man filled with hate for Jews and conservatives who support Jews. He also has many tweets attacking Donald Trump as a pawn of a global Jewish conspiracy.

One post, for instance, features a photo of President Trump sitting next to the standing figure of a yarmulke-wearing Jewish man who is saying, “Your character will appear to the public as a white racist. It’s how we control whites.”

In another he slammed Trump as a facade for globalism.

In yet another one, Bowers hinted that Trump is more like a cult leader than a president.

Along with the anti-Trumpism, nearly every post in Bowers’ stream is an attack on Jews. In fact, only hours before he opened fire on the Tree of Life synagogue, Bowers was again attacking Jews.

“I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered,” the post read according to WOKV news. “Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf decried the attack.

“These senseless acts of violence are not who we are as Americans,”  Wolf said in a statement. “My thoughts right now are focused on the victims, their families and making sure law enforcement has every resource they need.”
