Trump Blasts ABC For Trying To Pass Off Kentucky Gun Range Footage As From Syria

1 post in this topic


President Donald Trump called out ABC News on Wednesday for claiming that a video from a Kentucky gun range was actually footage showing Turkish attacks on northern Syria.

The president attacked the network during a joint press conference in response to a question from ABC News’ Jon Karl about whether the president gave a “green light” to Turkish President Recep Erdogan to attack the Kurds.


“I didn’t give him a green light. When you make a statement like that, it’s so deceptive,” Trump told Karl, before pivoting to ABC’s inaccurate reporting.

“It’s almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria and it turned out that the bombing you showed on television took place in Kentucky,” the president said. “I’m not even sure ABC apologized for that, but I’m certain it was a terrible thing. It was in Kentucky, it wasn’t in Syria.”

ABC News claimed earlier this week that they were showing viewers footage of Turkish fighters bombing the Kurds, coupled with the chyron, “Slaughter in Syria.” However, the video appeared to actually be taken in Kentucky at Knob Creek Gun Range in 2017.


ABC, where actual locations don't matter.
