Trump blames media for ‘division, hatred’

Trump blames media for ‘division, hatred’

"If the president is going to say the "fake news" media are the enemy of the people and if you're going to stand there and continue to say that there are some journalists, some news outlets in this country that meet that characterization, shouldn't you have the guts, Sarah, to state which outlets, which journalists are the enemy of the people?"
"In 20+ years as a USMC, Pentagon and DHS spokesman, I dealt w/ the news media almost every day".

President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will travel to Pittsburgh on Tuesday to support the city after 11 people were shot dead in the worst anti-Semitic attack in recent USA history. "That is outrageous that that would be the very first reaction of so many people across this country".

Some members of the local Jewish community have accused Trump of promoting the hatred which led to the anti-Semitic attack.

During an appearance on CNN on Monday morning before Trump's latest tweets, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway downplayed Trump's continued targeting of rivals. "I refer to Fake News Media when mentioning Enemy of the People - but dishonest reporters use only the word 'Media.' The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News".

He had earlier called for unity in the face of Saturday's assault on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.




The US president is visiting the city today to campaign for next week's mid-term election. I'm a citizen. He's my president. But with eight days to go before the midterm elections, he has continued to hold his political rallies, complete with harsh criticism of Democrats and the media. Last week, the NY offices of CNN, the cable network frequently attacked by Mr Trump and his supporters, was evacuated after receiving an explosive device and an envelope containing white powder. "He is certainly welcome", Myers said on CNN. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

"Wrong! I said that the 'Fake News (Media) is the Enemy of the People, ' a very big difference", he said.

At a rally Saturday night, Trump was somewhat muted but still offered his standard campaign attack lines, including citing Hillary Clinton and Rep. Maxine Waters, both of whom were targeted in the bomb plot.

On Sunday, he savaged billionaire businessman Tom Steyer on Twitter, another target of the mail bombs.
