Trump's attacks on media may lead to violence against journalists: UN expert

KONFRONTASI - The UN rapporteur for freedom of expression has warned that US President Donald Trump’s verbal attacks on the media risks provoking violence against journalists.

In a joint statement on Thursday with Edison Lanza, who holds the same post at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, David Kaye said Trump’s tirades against the media violated the basic norms of press freedom.
