Trump argued during a campaign rally in Charlotte, N.C., that the “media has a major role to play whether they want to or not” in repairing the civility of political discourse.
In my opinion: What is Trump’s role in mending this country? What responsibility does he hold for his violent rhetoric?
The crowd began chanting “media sucks.”
“The media’s constant unfair coverage, deep hostility and negative attacks only serve to drive people apart and to undermine healthy debate,” Trump continued.
The president then accused the news media of attempting to use the mail bombing case as ammunition against him and the GOP.
IS THIS MAN INSANE?
“We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister actions of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican Party,” Trump charged.
