Remember, the press is concerned about an alleged remark that the President said in a meeting. Specifically, the media claimed that President Trump said that “reverse” could be true in describing possible perpetrators of anti-Semitic acts.
Who did the press rely on for a quote from the meeting? A Democratic Attorney General from Pennsylvania. Is that a reputable source, Washington Post?
When Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) asked him about the recent threats against Jewish facilities, the president responded by condemning the statements but then “suggested the ‘reverse’ may be true,” Shapiro said.
“I don’t know what the president meant by that statement,” Shapiro said in a statement.
Trump “made this reference that sometimes it’s the reverse” and then “used that word ‘reverse’ several times,” Joe Grace, a spokesman for Shapiro, said in a telephone interview Tuesday afternoon. Grace was relaying what Shapiro had said publicly during a phone call with reporters earlier Tuesday.
