“The press should be ashamed of themselves,” Trump said. “The media is what’s fueling this, more so than even Biden, because Biden doesn’t know he’s alive. The press is really fueling this, and they’re fueling it horribly.”
“And you’re doing a great disservice to your country,” Trump added.
QUESTION: Mr. President, can you speak at all — you’ve spoken a lot about the anarchy that you’re referring to. What about racial divisions? Would you like to bridge some of those gaps?
TRUMP: Yeah, I would. I would.
QUESTION: And do you think that anything that you’re saying is helping with that?
TRUMP: I think it’s helping because I’m about law and order. And if you look at the black community, they want the police to help them stop crime. The Hispanic community, they want police. Eighty-two percent, eighty-four percent — numbers that you haven’t even seen — they don’t want crime. They don’t want to be mugged. They don’t want to have any problems. And it’s just a shame.
And as far as the previous administration, take a look at Baltimore, what happened. Was it Freddie Gray? Take a look at Baltimore. Take a look at St. Louis. Take a look at Ferguson. Take a look at what happened. What they had was — it put what we’re doing — it put them to shame — it put it to shame. Take a look at those places. And you always had Portland. Portland has been like this — I read an article today — for 50 years this has been going on. I’d like to stop it, and we could stop it quickly. All they have to do is say, “Okay, President, now we’re ready. Now we’re ready.”
When I watched that scene last night, with all of those really horrible people outside of the mayor’s house, I also saw the way they shot the young gentleman in the street. He was targeted. They targeted him. They shot him in the street, and then they were so happy, and he died. You don’t mention that. You mention somebody spray-painted somebody from the other side. They shot a man in the street. They executed a man in the street — a religious man, in the street. And you don’t mention it. It’s not even a story. You talk about other things.
The press should be ashamed of themselves. I think the press is actually — the media is what’s fueling this, more so than even Biden, because Biden doesn’t know he’s alive. The press is really fueling this, and they’re fueling it horribly. And you’re doing a great disservice to your country.
Okay. Any other questions?
