Media Delete Stories Attacking Trump Over Immigrant Kids After Realizing Numbers Were Obama’s

The Associated Press, Reuters, and other news outlets deleted stories that attacked President Donald Trump over the number of immigrant kids detained in the U.S. immigration system after the news outlets discovered that the statistics they used for their stories were from 2015, during Obama’s regime.

Several media outlets deleted stories that attacked Donald Trump for having “100,000 kids” in custody in the U.S. immigration system. The outlets were furious over the number because it reportedly violates international law.

But after the stories were published by the AP, Reuters, AFP, Aljazeera, and others, the source of the numbers noted that Trump can’t be blamed for the claim because the number in question came from 2015 when Obama was in office.

“Reuters decided to withdraw its story after the United Nations issued a statement on November 19 saying the number of children in detention was not current but was for the year 2015,” a Reuters spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Reuters also published a notice reading, “A Nov. 18 story headlined ‘U.S. has world’s highest rate of children in detention -U.N. study’ is withdrawn. The United Nations issued a statement on Nov. 19 saying the number was not current but was for the year 2015. No replacement story will be issued.”

Several other news outlets also jumped on the story to attack President Trump but pulled the story once they realized the numbers were Obama’s fault.

The Associated Press also filed a new story noting:

“But on Tuesday, he [Nowak] told The AP that figure was drawn from a U.N. refugee agency report citing data from 2015, the latest figure his team could find. That was before U.S. President Donald Trump, whose policies on migration have drawn criticism, was elected.”

So, when they thought this large number of incarcerated kids was Trump’s fault, news outlet after news outlet published stories outraged about the evils of Orange Man, but when they found out the numbers were actually from Obama’s reign of terror… well, suddenly they were not interested in reporting on the numbers and began deleting stories to cover for Obama.

What a surprise, huh?
