Spicer: No question that Trump 'respects the judicial branch'

President Trump pauses while speaking to troops at the U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command at Mac Dill Air Force Base in Tampa Fla. Feb. 6 2017

To back up this claim that the new media are simply not reporting or devoting enough coverage to these terrorist attacks, [White House] press secretary Sean Spicer said that they would produce a list of these attacks that they believe were not covered enough. Last week, after his executive order was suspended by U.S. District Judge James Robart, Trump accused the "so-called judge" of potentially enabling terrorists, intimating that Robart would be personally responsible if an attack occurred on American soil after the ban was lifted.

This has left plenty of room for reflecting on Trump's repeated use of Islamic terrorist attacks, or the mere threat of such, as a reason for justifying his recent immigration and refugee ban. They have their reasons, and you understand that " President Donald Trump said.

Speaking to US Central Command in Tampa, Fla. on Monday, Mr. Trump suggested that terrorist attacks are so frequent that the media has stopped reporting on them.

The top Democrat on the committee said Kelly wasn't to blame for the order because he had little input. Kelly responded: "Not until the boom".

Trump told the troops yesterday that that terror attacks are happening all over Europe but the media is ignoring them. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to say it. "Not only did we cover numerous attacks on that list the White House has released, we covered them heavily".

The Post, in the video above, also notes that the White House's list "omits attacks that didn't involve a Muslim or Islamic state sympathetic attacker". Both incidents received widespread media coverage.

What's doing the rounds on social media these days are pictures of the President of United States Donald Trump in a bathrobe sitting on a bed.

Attorney-General George Brandis said Senator Bernardi had not acted like a conservative and had broken a promise to his electorate by leaving the party.

"It seems it is maybe created to cause a conversation about 78 terrorist attacks rather than the president's typically absurd comments". The White House's document made no reference to deadly domestic attacks such as the shootings in Colorado Springs and Charleston; it overlooked a series of attacks in Israel; and as Micah Zenko noted, most mass-fatality attacks are in sub-Saharan Africa, and Spicer's list didn't mention any of them.

The immigration order, entitled "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States", was already subject to criticism because no attacks on USA soil since 9/11 have been committed by nationals from those restricted countries - and this new list shows more of that same trend. But contrary to Trump's claim, the majority of the incidents on the White House list were in fact reported by western media.
