Trump Slammed For Reprising Attacks on ‘Fake News’ Media Days After Newspaper Shooting

Political observers are slamming President Trump by saying that his latest tweetstorm encourages hostility towards the press just days after the fatal attack on the Capitol Gazette.

Ever since 5 of the Gazette‘s employees were killed last week in their newsroom, the shooting prompted a lot of conversation about whether Trump promotes aggression towards the media. Indeed, members of the Gazette have spoken out and objected to how Trump has referred to the media as the “enemy of the people.”

In his latest tweet, Trump slammed the “fake news” media as the “opposition party” because they won’t say that “If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!”

On one hand, critics are bashing Trump for ignoring the latest intel on North Korea while claiming that he single-handedly averted global thermonuclear war. On the other hand, people are noting that it didn’t take long for Trump to attack the media again after the Annapolis incident:
