From Washington Examiner:
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders condemned the Washington Post on Sunday, accusing the news outlet of exploiting tragedies in the U.S. over the past several days by tying them to President Trump.
She reacted to a New York Times reporter’s tweet noting how the front page of the Sunday paper pointed to Trump critics saying the president sets the tone for the mail bomb attacks against prominent Democrats and deadly Pittsburgh synagogue shooting on Saturday.
“Is there any tragedy the Washington Post won’t exploit to attack President @realDonaldTrump? The evil act of anti-Semitism in Pittsburg was committed by a coward who hated President Trump because @POTUS is such an unapologetic defender of the Jewish community and state of Israel,” Sanders tweeted.
