President Donald Trump took to Twitter to slam the media for what he claimed was inaccurate reporting.

Many news outlets have published op-eds and articles that have questioned recent statements Trump has made and suggested that has contributed to the tragedy at the Pittsburgh synagogue.

However, Trump made his disapproval known by saying that the media’s reporting of the news has incited anger in the country.

Some of the stories published point out how Trump’s aggressive rhetoric may have incited the recent bomb packages and shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue.

Another reporter linked the embassy move to Trump being responsible for the shooting.

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson also claimed that leaders should “tone it down” and avoid incivility.

“We’re in an environment now where there are deranged individuals who feel it’s their place to try to bring about change with an AR-15 or a series of pipe bombs,” said Johnson.

Trump is known for his explosive rhetoric toward those he disagrees with and is not afraid to speak his mind. However, it is uncertain whether the president’s comments have incited the violence that reporters seem to be blaming him for.

While the president is known for having an aggressive strategy, that does not necessarily mean he is guilty of inciting violence.
