One of the targets of the mail bomb attacks last week was liberal Jewish philanthropist George Soros, who has been accused by far-right conspiracy theorists of paying migrants to join the caravan.

"It should be up to the rabbis and the families, whether or not they want to take a visit from the president", Doyle said. There were concerns about logistics and whether police would be able to handle the presidential visit, the people said.
