Crowd Chants ‘CNN Sucks’ As Trump Accuses Media Of Scoring ‘Political Points’ Over MAGA Bomber Arrest




President Trump criticized the media for its coverage of the arrest of Florida Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc, who is suspected of sending at least 13 explosive devices by mail to prominent Democratic figures, claiming the media is trying to “score political points” against him and the Republican Party.

“The media has tried to attack the incredible supporters of our movement,” he said. “We want honest coverage from the media. That’s all we want.”

He also repeated his claim that he is a “nationalist,” not a “globalist,” but he wants “to help the globe.”

Trump began the rally by addressing Sayoc’s arrest, telling the crowd: “Political violence must never, ever be allowed in America and I will do everything in my power to stop it.”



Trump called for an “end to the politics of personal destruction.” He added that “the media has a major role to play, whether they want to or not.”

“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 charged.

The crowd responded by chanting “CNN sucks,” while Trump looked on.

CBS notes:

Mr. Trump falsely said that when a supporter of Bernie Sanders shot at several Republican congressmen last year, Republicans did not blame Sanders, as “it would have been the wrong thing to do.” In fact, Republican figures such as Newt Gingrich and Rep. Steve King pointed to the rise of violence on the left as a cause for the shooting.
