White House Reporter Blames Trump for Newspaper Shooting: ‘You caused this, Mr. President’

A White House reporter blasted President Donald Trump, blaming him for the shooting, after Trump posted a condolence statement to Twitter Thursday afternoon on the mass shooting at the Capital Gazette in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, just outside Annapolis that killed five and left several others gravely wounded.

“Prior to departing Wisconsin, I was briefed on the shooting at Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Thank you to all of the First Responders who are currently on the scene.”

Andrew Feinberg, “You caused this, Mr. President.”

Feinberg’s Twitter bio reads, “Breakfast Media White House Correspondent/Managing Ed | Called @realDonaldTrump a liar to his face”

UPDATE: The Global Editor for Reuters Breakingviews, Rob Cox, also blamed Trump, “This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul. At least four people killed in Maryland newspaper shooting: reports”
