CNN Decides To Falsely Add “Racial” To Trump Comment

The Hill’s Joe Concha catches something interesting

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.”

“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.

He notes that CNN has been running headlines on TV throughout the day that include the addition of “racial” and has a screenshot at the article.

CNN is running an article right now with “racial profiling

Donald Trump on Monday reiterated his support for the controversial practice of racial profiling by police amid increasing threats to the homeland. (snip)

Trump did not say on what attributes he would encourage police to profile possible suspects, but It’s illegal for police to subject US persons to disparate treatment based on their race or other protected status.

Is there any wonder that people do not trust the media? This is purely made up. Trump has said nothing about racial profiling. This was simply made up.
