The White House did not point to any examples supporting Trump's contention that terrorist attacks were "not even being reported".

If anything, we should be talking less about terrorism.

"The Trump administration has already asserted blatant lies as truth, then excused them as 'alternative facts.' Together these new statements push toward a specific pre-debunking of any media coverage of terrorist attacks, and allowing Trump to push his own counternarrative". "It doesn't want you to know the truth about how unsafe terrorism is".
