Trump tells troops the media is HIDING terrorist attacks, will provide a LIST!

While giving a speech to U.S. troops today, President Trump made a claim that is enraging journalists about the media.

Watch below:



Here’s how CBS reported it:

The president began talking about how “radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland” as they did on 9/11, in the Boston bombings and in San Bernardino. He said it’s also happening “all over Europe” like in Paris and Nice.

“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. In many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand that,” Mr. Trump said.

Reporters were outraged:

And Sean Spicer says they will provide a list!

I do think that the media is reticent to report on such attacks, but as usual, Trump exaggerates to an absurd extreme. I don’t think there’s any evidence of the media hiding a terrorist attack from people, there’s just no way they can do that. But there are plenty of instances where media figures accidentally tip their hand and show how liberal they actually are. Unfortunately, Trump is going to make that position sound ridiculous by exaggerating it too much and letting news outlets slam him on it.
