Washington Post Implies Trump Encourages Shooting Border Crossers

The Washington Post suggested Thursday that President Trump endorsed “tacitly encouraging extrajudicial killings and brutality” against caravans headed to the U.S.

The paper's story focused on a moment that occurred immediately after saying he would "never" use weapons at a Florida campaign rally Wednesday.

Trump was discussing the ongoing issue of migrants crossing the Southern Border and specifically said he “would never let” law enforcement officials use weapons to keep them from entering the country illegally.

“We can’t let them use weapons, we can’t. Other counties do. We can’t,” Trump said. “I would never do that.”

The president then asked, presumably rhetorically, “How do you stop these people?”

Someone in the crowd apparently yelled “shoot them,” prompting Trump to shake his head “no” and respond, “Only in the Panhandle, you can get away with that statement.”

bleat, bleat
Seriously

If anything it's Faux News fault for using the word "implied"

Here is that the article actually said


Shoot them!” someone yelled from the crowd, according to reporters on the scene and attendees.

The audience cheered. Supporters seated behind Trump and clad in white baseball caps bearing the letters “USA” laughed and applauded.

“That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement,” Trump replied, smiling and shaking his head. “Only in the Panhandle.”

Though Trump didn’t explicitly endorse the suggestion to shoot migrants, his joking response raised concerns that he was tacitly encouraging extrajudicial killings and brutality against asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The president has long been accused of endorsing acts of violence through his incendiary rhetoric and allusions to the potential for violence at his rallies, a charge that members of his administration deny.

Of course, the WP is right

He has a long history of "joking" about violence. I still remember when he was running, journalists had to be in a "penned" off areas, because of all the nasty things/death threats that they were getting from Trump supporters.

This is an article from Fox News, not Trump, about calling out WaPo AGAIN for being fake news.

No one is parroting anything from Trump here.

We are discussing what Fake News WaPo falsely implied about the President.
