US President Donald Trump speaks following a visit to the US Central Command and Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base. Photo: AFPUS President Donald Trump accused the media Monday of disregarding attacks perpetrated by radical jihadists, in a provocative statement for which he provided no evidence.“ISIS is on a campaign of genocide, committing atrocities across the world. Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland,” the president said, using an acronym for the Islamic State group.Trump, who was speaking during a visit to US Central Command in Tampa, Florida then listed a string of attacks carried out in the United States, including 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombings, the Orlando gay nightclub massacre and the San Bernardino shootings.“You have seen what happened in Paris and Nice. All over Europe it’s happening. It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” Trump added.“And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it,” he said, in one of his customary attacks on the media.“They have their reasons, and you understand that,” he concluded, without giving any explanation.Asked about the president’s statement shortly thereafter, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said “we’ll provide a list later.”“There’s several instances… There’s a lot of instances that have occurred where I don’t think they’ve gotten the coverage it deserved,” he said.

For the fourth time, Rep. Tom Craddick of Midland wants to make it a statewide crime to text while driving. “We feel we’re now down to where only four states in the country (that) don’t have it. It’s time we get it done, with the increased number of accidents caused by texting while driving,” he said. Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas are the remaining states without bans. Nearly 100 Texas cities have banned texting while driving, and Craddick says Gov. Greg Abbott wants to see consistency in the state. “And I think that’s the reason the governor is supporting it. He wants to see one unified law across the state. You can go from Amarillo to Lubbock and go through four difference ordinances, through cities. And then people don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong,” Craddick said. Craddick feels there’s momentum to get the bill signed into law this time. State Sen. Judith Zaffirini of Laredo has filed a similar bill in the Senate.
