CNN’s Jim Acosta responded to President Trump’s comments that he doesn’t see white nationalism as a rising threat in the US.
Acosta said, “If you look at what’s happened here in the U.S. in the last few years, whether it’s the neo-Nazi violence on the streets of Charlottesville, the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh last year, Anderson, even the attempted pipe bomb attack on CNN and other Democratic targets––Anderson, that is right-wing extremism violence, and the kind that is on the rise here in the U.S. and around the world, whether or not the president likes to admit to it or not.”
He’s not the only commentator on CNN who blamed President Trump for the New Zealand attack.
CNN Political Commentator Kirsten Powers had a similar opinion.
She said, “I don’t think you can blame Donald Trump for this attack, I think you can blame Donald Trump for really trafficking in bigotry and, you know, islamophobia, wanting to ban all Muslims as he said during the campaign.”
Should the liberal media be ashamed of themselves for blaming President Trump for the attacks?
