National Press Club leaders expressed outrage Thursday at President Donald Trump’s escalating attacks on the press and the White House’s revocation of a reporter’s credentials.
Club President Andrea Edney said:
“The president’s personal attacks on reporters, especially on CNN’s Jim Acosta, during a Nov. 7 news conference were unprecedented and beneath the dignity of the office.
The president and his aides have suggested they are aggrieved only by certain segments of the media, not all of it. But the Fourth Estate stands as one. An attack on any of us is an attack on all of us.”
