CNN host Don Lemon blames Trump for threats against network

Graham contended that some senators said Trump didn't use that word in a White House meeting, and he attempted to justify the president's use of crude language on other occasions by saying he's a businessman, not a politician, and uses the language he does to get points across.

"Mr. President, I'm going to speak directly to you". In the calls he said CNN was "fake news" and told the network "I'm coming to gun you all down", The Guardian reports.

Lemon said that Trump's "fake news" rhetoric was having unsafe consequences for members of the media whose lives are being threatened by people who believe his claims that the press is dishonest.

On Tuesday night, CNN host Don Lemon personally addressed President Donald Trump in an emotional monologue in which he told the president he is partially responsible for recent death threats against the cable news network's staff. "Nothing. This is what happens when the President of the United States -Donald Trump- repeatedly attacks members of the press simply for reporting facts he does not like", he added. Having heard that Trump watches the show, Lemon chose to give him a direct message.

Shaikh's associate Tulsi Prajapati, eye witness to the encounter, was also killed in another alleged fake police encounter later.

When pressed on if he thinks that the president should be a moral authority for the U.S., Graham said, "I hope and pray that he will be a better moral authority in these next three years".

"And I believe that he's a changed person and I've never seen anybody get attacked like he gets attacked", Graham said, referring to Trump's continuing insistence that the media was unfairly attacking him.

"People take that message seriously", Lemon said. "The president, just this morning, blasting our very own Jim Acosta and calling CNN 'fake news, ' a charge he has leveled at the press, not just CNN, over and over". "Some very risky people", Lemon continued, vowing "no matter how many times you attack us as fake news, we will continue to do our jobs". News of the threats against CNN became public Monday evening. That night, the Post noted that Lemon began his show by saying, "This is 'CNN Tonight, ' I'm Don Lemon". But he did back one of Republican Trump's most controversial proposals, to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the United States.
