Instead of backing off his criticism of the Establishment Media following a week of violent tragedy, President Donald Trump doubled down by again imploring news agencies to stop its attack on American values in general, and the Trump administration specifically.
The latest round of back and forth followed a 24-hour news cycle that had media programs repeatedly linking the horrific Pittsburg synagogue shooting to the president even though Trump is widely regarded as one of the most Jewish-friendly presidents in U.S. history. His daughter, son in law, and several grandchildren are Jewish, while the White House staff is strongly represented by people of Jewish heritage as well.
The media’s attacks on the president are seen by Trump supporters as adding more pain to an already difficult situation via taking a tragedy and attempting to politicize it with yet more lies being told against the president.
