The Guardian claims Trump after praise for attack on journalist

World October 19, 2018 14:32

- The Guardian wants US President Donald Trump to apologize for the comments he made about the physical attack of a Republican Congressman against a British newspaper reporter. Greg Gianforte beat journalist Ben Jacobs of The Guardian last year.

Trump made the remark Thursday during a speech in Montana. He praised the fact that Gianforte was working the journalist against the ground. 'Everyone who does that is my kind of man,' Trump cheered. The audio recording that showed how Gianforte hit the journalist caused a lot of controversy last year. The journalist had to be treated in the hospital.

In a statement on the website, The Guardian states that Trump's remark is an attack on the constitution by someone who has sworn to protect it. 'Raising an attack on a journalist invites other attacks in a world in which journalists experience much greater threats than these. '

Trump's comments come at a sensitive time. Everything indicates that the critical Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who lived and worked in the US for The Washington Post, was murdered by the Saudi government when he visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Trump has so far refused to condemn Saudi Arabia, despite the growing pile of evidence and the growing international pressure.

Many companies and government leaders have canceled a major conference on investments in Saudi Arabia that will take place soon. Trump has since deployed in the White House on a billions deal with the Saudis, including for arms trade, against the advice of many experts in Washington.
