Trump slams media coverage of hospital visits with mass shooting victims

President Trump disputed media claims — and denounced “fake reporting,” calling out a journalist by name and saying he was angered by coverage of his visits to victims of last week’s mass shootings.

“Maggie Haberman of the Failing @nytimes reported that I was annoyed by the lack of cameras inside the hospitals in Dayton & El Paso,” he tweeted Saturday.

“In fact I was the one who stated, very strongly, that I didn’t want the Fake News inside & told my people NOT to let them in. Fake reporting!”

Trump and First Lady Melania Trump went to Ohio and Texas Wednesday to honor law enforcement agents and comfort families in the wake of Saturday’s attacks on a Dayton bar and an El Paso Walmart.

Reporters on the trip complained at the time that White House press officials barred them from viewing Trump’s interactions.
