BIAS ALERT: CNN Falsely Accuses Trump of ‘Racial Profiling’
CNN has falsely accused Donald Trump of calling for ‘racial profiling’ in wake of the recent terror attacks.
The network added the word ‘racial’ to Trump’s comments on terrorism and immigration, and is now running headlines reporting that the presidential candidate is advocating racial profiling.
Trump’s exact quote was;
‘Our police are amazing. Our local police — they know who a lot of these people are. They are afraid to do anything about it because they don’t want to be accused of profiling and they don’t want to be accused of all sorts of things. You know, in Israel they profile. They’ve done an unbelievable job, as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job, and they’ll profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious, they will profile. They will take that person and they’ll check out. Do we have a choice? Look what’s going on. Do we really have a choice? We’re trying to be so politically correct in our country. And this is only going to get worse.’
Note that Trump never uses the term ‘racial’ during his comment.
