President Barack Obama will travel to Oregon this week to visit privately with families of the victims of last week's shooting at a community college.
However the trip has angered locals in Roseburg who say Obama is 'not welcome' in the town because the visit will be nothing but a 'grandstand for political purposes'.
Leading the chorus is David Jaques, the publisher of conservative newspaper the Roseburg Beacon.
'I think that's very inappropriate, and I think it's disrespectful to the families,' Jaques told Breitbart News.
