Debroo.net. President Trump’s rally in Wisconsin : Trump calls on media to stop “endless hostility”. President Donald Trump vowed an “aggressive investigation” into the attempted attacks on former Presidents Clinton and Obama, as well as other former government officials and CNN.
“Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself. No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation or coercion or control, we all know that. Such conduct must be fiercely opposed and firmly prosecuted,” he said.
But he then pivoted to calling for people on “all sides” to come together.
“For example, those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being morally defective,” he said. “These are arguments and disagreements that have to stop. No one should carelessly compare political opponents to historical villains, which is done often, it’s done all the time. Gotta stop. We should not mob people in public spaces or destroy public property. There is one way to settle our disagreements, it’s called peacefully at the ballot box.”
And then he had a message for the media.
“As part of a larger national effort to bridge our divides and bring people together, the media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories. Have to do it,” he said to applause, adding, “They’ve gotta stop. Bring people together.”
