CNN falsely adds ‘racial’ to Trump’s comments on vetting

CNNThe Clinton News Network, also known as CNN, struck again on Monday, editing comments made by GOP nominee Donald Trump to give the false impression that he called for racial profiling, The Hill reported.

According to Joe Concha (emphasis added):

CNN added the word “racial” to Donald Trump‘s Monday comments on terrorism and immigration, and is running headlines reporting that the GOP nominee is advocating “racial profiling”.

But a review of the transcript of Trump’s comments to Fox News that CNN quoted, however, shows that Trump never put the word “racial” in front of “profiling.” 

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

“You know in Israel, they profile,” Trump said Monday to Fox News. “They’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they’ll profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out.”

In a later interview with Bill O’Reilly, Trump also expressed a need to profile in the manner Israel does, but again didn’t use the word “racial.” But when pressed by O’Reilly how it could be determined how a person could be deemed suspicious, Trump wouldn’t elaborate.

Got that?  Trump NEVER used the word “racial,” but the propagandists at CNN added it to paint a false picture and distort his comments.

Throughout the day, Concha added, CNN ran headlines twisting and distorting his comments.

“CNN.com also is using the term racial profiling in its headlines,” he said.

And it seems that CNN isn’t alone.  According to Concha, “…Fox News excerpts the network sent out Monday evening also framed his quotes as responses to questions about ‘racial profiling.'”

Incidents like this are the reason so many no longer trust the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the “Democrat-media complex.”
