“Based on the incredibly inaccurate coverage and reporting of the record setting Trump campaign, we are hereby revoking the press credentials of the phony and dishonest Washington Post,” Mr. Trump said in a post on Facebook. Press credentials typically give reporters access to campaign events and press conferences.
“We no longer feel compelled to work with a publication which has put its need for ‘clicks’ above journalistic integrity,” the campaign said in statement released following the Facebook post. “They have no journalistic integrity and write falsely about Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump does not mind a bad story, but it has to be honest.”
The Trump campaign pointed to the initial Post headline “Donald Trump Suggests President Obama Was Involved With Orlando Shooting” as the reason for revoking credentials. The story centered on Mr. Trump’s comment on Fox News on Monday morning that President Barack Obama doesn’t understand Islamic terrorism, or “he gets it better than anybody understands.” In his Fox comments, Mr. Trump also said: “Look guys, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart or has something else in mind.”
