Trump scolded for calling NY explosion a ‘bomb’ | Washington Examiner

Just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on, Donald Trump said at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo., Saturday night. The Republican presidential hopeful also hinted that he knew something about the cause of the explosion. It’s a terrible thing what’s going on in our world, what’s going on in our country, but we are going to get tough and smart and vigilant and we are going to end it, Trump said. There had been an explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan at about 8:30 p.m. local time. The blast blew out windows in the area and injured more than 20 people, though there have been no reported fatalities. The GOP nominee was then scolded by the press and by his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for saying that it was a bomb and implying that it was terrorism. Trump made the statement before local officials had publicly confirmed details of the incident or what caused the explosion. Typically, national political figures use caution when describing unfolding investigations and law enforcement actions, reported CNN.
