Quotes: Media outlets attack Donald Trump over response to Orlando shooting

Following the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, Donald Trump by many newspaper outlets, saying the GOP candidate “…descended this week to a new low of bigotry, fear-mongering and conspiracy-peddling.”

New York Times Editorial Board: What Donald Trump Gets Wrong About Orlando: “If there is anyone who might try to turn one of the worst atrocities in modern American history to his own warped ends, who could draw all the wrong lessons from the horror of what happened in Orlando, it is Donald Trump.”

Raleigh News & Observer Editorial Board: To mourning, add resolve to stemgun violence: “In one more test of his capability of leadership, Trump failed miserably. For her part, Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton supported the president’s sentiments and also endorsed more gun control.”

Washington Post Editorial Board: Donald Trump’s assault on our values:  “It had not seemed possible, but Donald Trump descended this week to a new low of bigotry, fear-mongering and conspiracy-peddling…Before the Orlando shooting, Beltway analysts speculated about how a terrorist attack might affect the presidential election. Now we know at least part of the answer: Mr. Trump would reveal himself more clearly than ever as a man unfit to lead.”

Tampa Bay Times Editorial Board: Clinton’s substance over Trump’s bombast on terrorism: “Hillary Clinton provided somber steadiness and a thoughtful way forward. Donald Trump resorted to bombastic demagoguery, profiling and reckless political attacks. The contrast could not be starker nor the stakes higher for the nation’s future.”

LA Times Editorial Board: Trump smearing Obama with innuendo over Muslims and Orlando is a new low — even for him: “Donald J. Trump, the loose cannon who would be president, hintedMonday that President Obama might be complicit in terror attacks by Islamic extremists, including Sunday’s bloodbath in Orlando, Fla. That accusation by innuendo marks a new and repugnant low for Trump, who along with his surrogates is engaged in a smear campaign reminiscent of the dark days of McCarthyism.”

Bloomberg Opinion: Lake: Trump’s Bluster About Radical Islam Helps Radical Islam: “The best way to stop these terrorists is to enlist as many Muslims as possible in a fight against them. The last two American presidents grasped this lesson. Unfortunately, the presumptive Republican nominee has not.”
