As both cities begin burying the people killed in last week’s shootings, Trump lashes out at NYT reporter over Dayton, El Paso coverage:
President Trump lashed out at New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman early Saturday, claiming that the veteran journalist had misrepresented his trips to Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, this week to meet with people affected by last week’s mass shootings there.
“Maggie Haberman of the Failing @nytimes reported that I was annoyed by the lack of cameras inside the hospitals in Dayton & El Paso, when in fact I was the one who stated, very strongly, that I didn’t want the Fake News inside & told my people NOT to let them in. Fake reporting!” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
It was an odd end to a week that saw Trump criticized for his “thumbs-up photo with orphaned baby in El Paso” and other moments that led Anthony Scaramucci to say El Paso, Dayton visits were ‘catastrophe’ for Trump and to also “call out WHite House ‘cowards’ for leaking.”
