Trump claims media used pipe bomb campaign to score ‘political points’ | US news | The Guardian


Donald Trump ignored even his own calls for civility and unity in politics in the wake of the pipe-bomb campaign, unleashing on Friday night a defiant attack on the media and “radical socialist” Democrats at his latest rally in North Carolina.

In front of a crowd of about 8,000 supporters at the Bojangles’ Coliseum sports arena, Trump castigated the TV and press reporters lined up in front of him. He reprised the phrase “fake news” that he notably refrained from uttering on Wednesday at his previous rally in Wisconsin just hours after a mail bomb was delivered to CNN’s studios in New York.

“We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister acts of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican party,” he said. “The media’s constant unfair coverage, deep hostility and negative attacks only serve to drive people apart and to undermine healthy debate.”

His comments incited loud chants of “CNN sucks” from the crowd.

  1. This is pure Trump for he has to be the centre of attention. His own rhetoric is the prime cause of any violence and aggression coming from his supporters. He likes to give it, but can not countenance taking it.

    He is totally liable for any violence which comes to fruition from his continual rhetoric and should be held accountable.

    This incident of the Pipe Bombs will not be the last and it is all down to Trump.
