MINNEAPOLID (WCCO) – From President Donald Trump taking heat for a tweet about CNN to Crayola’s new crayon color, here is a look at the top four stories from July 3, 2017.
President Donald Trump is under fire from both sides of the aisle and the media after tweeting an edited old pro wrestling video of himself Sunday.
In the video, the president is seen pummeling the head of a WWE wrestler with a CNN logo over his face.
CNN released a statement saying, “It is a sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against reporters.”
Supporters of the president insist he is merely defending himself from unfair news coverage.
Japan’s Prime Minister and President Trump talked on the phone Sunday night about stepped-up pressure on North Korea in cooperation with South Korea.
The White House said President Trump also spoke with China’s president about the growing threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
