CNN’s New York offices and studios were evacuated due to a bomb threat called into the station, CNN reported Thursday.

The network has gone to taped programming.

The bomb threat was phoned in shortly after an angry tweet from President Donald Trump.

CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd also had thoughts on the potential relationship between Trump and the bomb threat.

Here’s what really went down with Trump’s Taliban peace talks misadventure

Published

on

Donald Trump is not known for finessing foreign policy but for years prior to his election and during his campaign, he was mostly right about Afghanistan. He called it a “total disaster,” said it was “wasting our money” and that we should leave “immediately.”
