The Associated Press wrote a damning introduction to a story about Donald Trump in response to his offensive tweets about the attacks in London.
The introduction reads:
President Donald Trump can’t be counted on to give accurate information to Americans when violent acts are unfolding abroad.
The article fact checks Trump’s recent comments on attacks abroad, including a shooting in the Philippines which he incorrectly referred to as a “terrorist attack”.
In particular, they criticized this tweet:
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!

It comes after a series of tone-deaf and ill-informed tweets following the London Bridge and Borough Market attack which killed seven and injured 48 people on Saturday night.
