Attendees then broke into song, with Trump mock-conducting from the dais.
“Thank you!” Samet shouted.

Samet is a member of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, where a gunman opened fire last October, killing 11 people.
The White House also hosted Timothy Matson, a member of the Pittsburgh Police Department who suffered multiple gunshot wounds while responding to the shooting.
Trump recognized Matson’s efforts, prompting another standing ovation from attendees.
