Trump's long, combative war with the press

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign has banned at least a dozen news organizations, a disturbing trend that media groups say highlights his disdain for free speechDonald Trump has had tense ties with reporters since launching his presidential campaign one year ago Thursday, but he took it a dramatic step further this week by banning The Washington Post from his events. At rallies during primary season, he lashed out at journalists as “dishonest” and “sleaze.” Some were threatened by Trump supporters, others manhandled by security personnel or Trump staff. Trump’s ban on the Post apparently stemmed from his disapproval of its story — reported after the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida by a radicalized gunman — stating that Trump seemed to suggest that President Barack Obama sympathized with terrorists.
