“Donald Trump said that he is revoking the press credentials of The Washington Post, after complaining about a headline on one of their stories about his response to the terrorist attack in Orlando,” Variety reports.
Trump was apparently upset about a headline on a story, which Trump quoted as reading, “Donald Trump suggests President Obama was involved with Orlando shooting.” The story reported on comments Trump made in an appearance today on “Fox & Friends.”
Trump reportedly said during the appearance: “We’re led by a man that is either not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind. People cannot believe it. They cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can’t even mention the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”
The headline on The Post story now reads, “Donald Trump seems to connect President Obama to Orlando shooting.”
Trump posted messages on Facebook and Twitter, writing that “based on the incredibly inaccurate coverage and reporting of the record setting Trump campaign, we are hereby revoking the press credentials of the phony and dishonest Washington Post.”
