In the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, President Donald Trump addressed the nation on Monday morning from the White House. After his speech, CNN — a network derided by the president as being “fake news” — came out in support of the president’s remarks.
John King, the network’s chief national correspondent, joined “CNN Newsroom” hosts John Berman and Poppy Harlow for the initial roundup following the speech.
“Look, pitch-perfect from the president right there,” King said of Trump’s remarks.
King then claimed that there would be many who would not appreciate the president’s comments or “won’t find truthfulness or credibility in something their president just said.” He continued by saying that he hoped those people would “take a breath” and let the president’s words resonate, as they were largely a call for unity.
Adding that Trump is dealing with an increasing number of tragedies at the moment, King opined that “whatever your politics are there isn’t anything you can take issue with what we just heard from the president of the United States right there.”
Before handing the segment back to the “CNN Newsroom” hosts he doubled down on his previous comment, calling the speech “pitch-perfect” again.
