1 Trump Blames Media For Violence
Violence has plagued us over the last week after we've learned about a bomb plot and mass killing at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. President Trump took to Twitter and voiced his concerns about this recent rash of violence. "There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news," Trump tweeted out on Monday. He also referred to the "Fake News Media" as the "true Enemy of the People." Trump said journalists "must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame."
2 Synagogue Shooter Railed Against Jews & Trump
As law enforcement authorities continue to comb through the evidence from the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue, a review of the admitted gunman’s social media postings shows a clear hatred for Jews, immigrants, and President Trump. Robert Bowers had a profile on the social media network Gab, which he joined in January 2018. Some of his posts included saying President Donald Trump was “controlled by Jews,” and was not a nationalist and just moments before the shooting, he posted: ‘HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I'm going in."
3 Another Suspicous Package To CNN Intercepted, Sayoc Reportedly Had List Of 100 Targets
The man authorities say is responsible for sending Pipe-bombs through the mail made his first appearance before a federal judge in Miami yesterday. Law enforcement officials revealed that Cesar Sayoc kept a list of more than 100 potential targets and that they intercepted another suspicious package sent to CNN. The FBI is working to notify everyone on his list because they feel it's their "duty to warn" anyone on the list of potential victims. They say he was searching online for political figures, journalists and entertainers.
