Journalists, leftists and a former congressman immediately jumped to blame President Donald Trump after Thursday’s shooting at a Maryland newsroom.

Five people were reported dead on Thursday after a gunman opened fire at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland.

Before any information about the shooter or his motivations were revealed, verified users on Twitter blamed President Trump’s rhetoric about the press for the shooting.

Several cited his calls of “fake news” and “enemy of the people” as possible triggers for the attack.
