‘Treason, Sedition, Insurrection!’: Trump Loses It After Fox News Interviews BLM Leader
Donald Trump flipped out on Twitter on Thursday after Fox News interviewed a Black Lives Matter Leader.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Martha McCallum welcomed Hank Newsome, president of Greater New York Black Lives Matter. According to Trump, after seeing the interview he declared the Black Lives Matter movement “treasonous.”
“Black Lives Matter leader states, ‘If U.S. doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it,’” Trump tweeted. “This is Treason, Sedition, Insurrection!”

During the interview, McCallum had asked Newsome to justify his remarks that violence is the answer in the pursuit of civil rights.
Newsome was surprised by the way she framed her question.
“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that,” Newsome said, “because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe?”
“I said, if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it,” Newsome said. “All right? And I could be speaking … figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation.”
