Trump: My opponents shouldn't be criticizing me today. I can criticize them, though (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump started calling the Mayor of Dayton "a fraud" just after leaving the city today.
"It was a warm & wonderful visit. Tremendous enthusiasm & even Love. Then I saw failed presidential candidate (0%) Sherrod Brown & Mayor Whaley totally misrepresenting what took place inside of the hospital. Their news conference after I left for El Paso was a fraud."
Mayor Nan Whaley was shown Trump's tweets and was genuinely confused on why she was being attacked, not knowing what she allegedly misrepresented about the president.
"I'm really confused. We said he was treated really well. I don't know what he's talking about misrepresenting. Oh well, you know. He lives in his world of Twitter."
For the record, Sherrod Brown didn't run for president. Trump must have him confused with someone else. It is common knowledge and widely reported that he didn't run, too. He put out a statement months ago saying he was going to continue fighting for workers by serving Ohio in the U.S. Senate.
In El Paso, Trump made his first public comments in person while visiting with the law enforcement team responsible for taking out the white supremacist shooter that idolized Trump.
He said that his opponents shouldn't be using today to be politicking, aka criticizing him. But, that didn't stop him from issuing out his own negativeness, even before Air Force One touched down in Texas.
Trump also did some politicking of his own. He made a campaign-style type video of him visiting with medical staff and law enforcement in Dayton, Ohio. That's the definition of using tragedy for a photo-op, and for political gain.
