Donald Trump kritiserte i natt mediene for å bruke bombene politisk, mot ham selv og tilhengerne. Det er uhørt å bruke bombene på denne måten, sa Trump under et MAGA-møte i Charlotte, Nord-Carolina.

“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 said.

Liberale medier og ledende Demokrater var ikke sene om å si at bombene er et direkte resultat av Trumps retorikk. Trump ber mediene og Demokratene besinne seg.

Trump condemned political violence and called for an end to the politics of personal destruction, especially from the media.

“Political violence must never ever be allowed in America and I’ll do everything in my power to stop it,” he said. “The media has a major role to play, whether they want to or not.” (…)

“They have a major role to play as far as tone, as far as everything,” Trump said. “The media’s constant unfair coverage, deep hostility, and negative attacks only serve to drive people apart and to undermine healthy debate.”

Trump minnet om at Republikanerne ikke brukte attentatet mot Republikanske kongressrepresentanter under en sportstrening i Alexandria, Virginia, i juni ifjor, politisk. Innpisker i Representantenes hus, Steve Scalise, ble dødelig såret.

Angrepene på Trump er også et angrep på velgerne, sa Trump.

“The media has tried to attack the incredible Americans who support our movement to give power back to the people,” Trump said. “Our supporters are some of the most honest, wonderful, principled, hard working, patriotic people on the face of God’s earth.”
