Trump Slams Mainstream Media

( – Showcasing that most leftwing institutions are essentially defenders of the current agenda, former President Donald Trump criticized Democrats and the mainstream media for distorting his “bloodbath” remark regarding the U.S. auto industry and misinterpreting his words.

During a rally in Ohio on Saturday, Trump expressed concerns about the threat posed to the American car industry by imports.

“If I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — that’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country,” Trump said, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Although Trump’s focus was evidently on the auto industry, media outlets exaggerated the term “bloodbath.”

In an attempt to distort Trump’s words, ran a story titled “Trump says there will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses the election,” while posted an article titled “In Ohio campaign rally, Trump says there will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses November election.”

Trump posted on TruthSocial in response to such comments:

“The Fake News Media, and their Democrat Partners in the destruction of our Nation, pretended to be shocked at my use of the word BLOODBATH, even though they fully understood that I was simply referring to imports allowed by Crooked Joe Biden, which are killing the automobile industry.”

Trump further argued that while the United Auto Workers understand his point, their leadership does not. He also emphasized his commitment to revitalizing auto manufacturing if re-elected in 2024.

Despite not endorsing Trump for president in 2024, former Vice President Mike Pence defended Trump’s remarks and stated on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that Trump was clearly addressing the impact of imports on the American automotive industry.

Likewise, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized Trump’s use of the word “bloodbath” during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” and she did not provide the full context of his comments or acknowledge their reference to the auto industry.
