Trump lashes out at CNN in 3am tweet accusing news channel of ‘blaming him’ for US bomb scares
President turns fire on media amid ‘domestic terror’ incidents
|Harry Cockburn,The Independent US|AIWA! NO!|Donald Trump has again lashed out at the press while US authorities investigate a spate of attempted bomb attacks in which live devices were sent to CNN, and prominent Democrats, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros and Robert De Niro.
In a tweet posted at 3.17am in Washington DC, Mr Trump said it was “funny” how news organisations can criticise him, yet when he does the same they “go wild and scream ‘it’s just not presidential’”.
The discovery of an explosive device prompted the evacuation of CNN’s offices in New York on Wednesday. A second scare on Thursday evening saw another partial evacuation.
