President Donald Trump scolded ABC News’ Jonathan Karl during a press conference over the network’s claim footage from a Kentucky gun range was from Syria.
Trump is a powerhouse.
Jonathan Karl asked the president whether he had “any regret for giving [Turkish president Recep Tayyip] Erdogan the green light to invade?”
“I didn’t give him a green light,” the president replied, going on to note that the U.S. had a very small number of soldiers near the border and that he had written a “very powerful letter” to Erdogan opposing Turkey’s invasion of Syria.
“And when you ask a question like that, that’s very deceptive, Jon, it’s almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria, and it turned out that the bombing that you showed on television took place in Kentucky. So, you know. And I’m not even sure that ABC apologized for that. But certainly, it was a terrible thing.”
“I think ABC owes an apology.”
Trump was referring to a story that ABC News ran on Sunday and Monday in which it claimed that it had obtained video footage showing the war in Syria. As Breitbart News noted:
The footage, which ABC News purported was of an attack on the border town of Tal Abyad, was aired Sunday on World News Tonight and Good Morning America on Monday morning. However, a comparison by Gizmodo shows the video was captured at Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky back in 2017.
The Washington Examiner reported that the video footage had been tweeted by a Turkish politician from Erdogan’s party, in celebration of Turkey’s offensive. That footage remains on Twitter.
President Donald Trump has exposed the real warmongers and surprise, surprise… it’s the left! Progressives, the MSM, RINOs, and Dimms can’t cope and their TDS is eating alive. It’s a beautiful thing to witness.
Kudos for Trump. The journalist ask him very deceiving questions. MSM gives him a hard time in how he responds back. All PT is doing is setting the record straight. They make him out to be a horrific leader in every sense of the word. It’s just not true I’ve watched very closely
