Now Playing CNN host: Trump’s tweet about Orlando massacre ‘wasn’t nice’ Now Play How Donald J Trump’s Twitter feud played out on ABC Now It was a good night for Donald Trump, as he went to Twitter to slam the network’s coverage over his comments about the Orlando shooting.
In a series of tweets, the President called ABC “fake news” and called the network “a very sad and sad institution” and an “enabler of ISIS.”ABC News and its parent company, NBCUniversal, were quick to respond, calling Trump’s accusations “false and absurd.”
“We stand united as a nation against hate and intolerance.
We are committed to defending and preserving the most cherished values of our republic: the rule of law, the right to freedom of expression, and the right of everyone to seek a fair and impartial hearing in the criminal justice system,” NBCUniversal said in a statement.ABC News’ Emily Bazelon and Emily B.
