President Donald Trump routinely uses harsh rhetoric towards the news media. Most recently, he called the media America's greatest enemy.

"The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" President Trump tweeted.

On Thursday there was an active shooter at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland that left five people dead.

Users on Twitter dragged the president for tweeting out his condolence to the victims.

"Don’t even bother pretending to care about the victims of gun violence or violence against members of the press until you get your hands out of the NRA’s pocket and stop referring to the media as the “enemy of the people," one user said.

Several people blamed President Trump for the shooting.
