WASHINGTON – In the wake of a bomb plot and a mass killing at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, President Donald Trump has again blamed the media for anger that has turned deadly.
“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news,” Trump tweeted Monday.
Again referring to the “Fake News Media” as” the true Enemy of the People,” Trump said journalists “must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame.”
Trump launched a similar attack on the media Sunday night, a day after a gunman killed 11 congregants at the Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
