CNN slams Donald Trump after he posted a video of himself assaulting the network in a wrestling match, saying, he’s “engaged in juvenile behavior far beneath the dignity of his office.”
CNN issues a statement: “It’s a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President has never done so. Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea, and working on his healthcare bill, he is engaged in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should do his.”

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press also issued a statement: “We condemn the president’s threat of physical violence against journalists. This tweet is beneath the office of the presidency. Sadly, it is not beneath this president.”
