USA Today Corrects Fake News That Trump Tweeted Breitbart Interview After New Zealand Shooting

USA Today has partially corrected a false report that President Donald Trump posted, then deleted, a tweet linking to an article at Breitbart News about “how ‘tough’ his supporters could get.”

Trump tweeted a link to the homepage at 11:05 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday evening. He did not tweet a link to any specific article.

A screen grab posted by a Breitbart critic confirms that fact — and the link in the tweet directs readers to the home page, not to any article.

Nevertheless, USA Today‘s David Jackson reported Friday morning under the headline “Donald Trump deletes Breitbart tweet about how ‘tough’ his supporters can get” (original links):

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump used Twitter on Thursday night to promote an interview in which he explained how “tough” his supporters could get – and deleted the tweet Friday morning after the New Zealand mosque shootings.

In his chat with the Breitbart News Network, Trump said: “I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.”

Breitbart said Trump was talking about the “vicious” tactics of “the left.”

“So here’s the thing—it’s so terrible what’s happening,” Trump said before discussing his supporters. “You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay?”
