Trump escalating anti-media rhetoric after latest violence

Pittsburgh synagogue massacre leaves 11 dead, 6 wounded Vancouver vigil to honour the victims of deadly synagogue shooting

The election season violence rattled a deeply divided nation and prompted questions about whether Trump should tone done his rhetoric.

DONALD TRUMP has again accused the media of being the "true enemy of the people" in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue mass shooting and the mail bomb plot.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has allowed the number of "daily briefings" she delivers to dwindle down to a almost non-existent amount, but when she does hold televised appearances, she makes sure to fill them with enough lies and vitriol to make up for her time away. "The very first thing the media did was blame the president and make him responsible for these ridiculous acts".

Trump complained Monday night that "CNN and others in the Fake News Business" were "purposely and inaccurately reporting" that he'd called the media the "Enemy of the People".

She later declined a request from CNN's Jim Acosta to name media organizations that Trump considers "enemies of the people".

Mr Trump condemned the Pittsburgh attack as an act of anti-Semitism and denounced political violence.

There have been mixed responses to Trump's plan to visit.

Trump to travel to Pennsylvania on Tuesday after synagogue shooting - worldwide
President Trump sent out a couple of tweets Monday pushing back on the idea that he's called the media the "enemy of the people". Bowers, 46, entered the synagogue armed with an AR-15 rifle and a Glock pistol during the Saturday service.

Jeffrey Myers, a Tree of Life rabbi who was present when the attack started, told CNN that "the president of the United States is always welcome". I'm a citizen. He's my president.

"If the President is looking to come to Pittsburgh, I would ask that he not do so while we are burying the dead". If White House press corps did launch a full-scale walkout, conservative outlets would stay behind, and Sanders and the administration's allies would use the event to excoriate the press even more.

CNN President Jeff Zucker said another suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted Monday at an Atlanta post office.

For example, Bowers had reportedly referred on social media to anger at a group of several thousand impoverished Central Americans now attempting to walk north to the United States - a favorite target of the president's anti-immigrant rhetoric. But with eight days to go before the midterm elections, he has continued to hold his political rallies, complete with harsh criticism of Democrats and the media. Last week, the NY offices of CNN, the cable network frequently criticized by Trump and his supporters, was evacuated after receiving an explosive device and an envelope containing white powder. He is planning an aggressive campaign schedule during the final days leading up to the November 6 elections.

"I'm not going to walk through a list, but I think those individuals know who they are", Huckabee Sanders said, later asserting that the vast majority of news coverage about Trump is negative and that the media needs to do a better job of covering Trump's accomplishments. On Twitter on Sunday, he savaged billionaire businessman Tom Steyer, another target of the mail bombs.

If it is found to contain an explosive device, it would be the 15th mail bomb - and the third to CNN - of a wave addressed to prominent Democrats and critics of US President Donald Trump, allegedly by a Trump supporter in Florida.
