Donald Trump Blames Media For Creating Violence By Asking Questions

Donald Trump

Donald Trump walked back his controversial remarks from yesterday when he told warned the refugee caravan that if they throw rocks at American soldiers, he would want them to shoot them with rifles.

“Anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican police, where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico, we will consider that a firearm,” Trump said. “Because there’s not much difference — when you get hit in the face with a rock, which as you know, that was very violent a few days ago. Very, very violent.”

Today, he reversed course on that plan saying he never said for soldiers to shoot.

The Trumpster also placed blame on the media when asked if his heated rhetoric might be responsible for increasing politically-related violence.

Pointing to Karen Travers of ABC News, he said, "You're creating violence by your question...A lot of the reporters are creating violence by not writing the truth."

As Travers points out, earlier this week White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Trump isn't placing blame on others.
