CNN has once again come under fire for manipulating the news to fit its own agenda, as the network ran headlines saying that GOP nominee Donald Trump called for “racial profiling” to combat terrorism.

Trump made several appearances Monday during which he called for increased vetting of those coming to the United States in order to weed out those who are seeking to commit acts of terrorism.

At no point, however, did Trump use the word ‘race’ or ‘racial’.

No matter to CNN, they inserted it into transcripts of his comments anyway and ran ticker headlines all day reading “Trump says ‘racial profiling’ will stop terror.

“You know in Israel, they profile,” Trump said Monday on Fox News. “They’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they’ll profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out.”

Earlier, Trump told Fox & Friends “If someone looks like he’s got a massive bomb on his back we won’t go up to that person because if he looks like he comes from that part of the world, we’re not allowed to profile, give me a break.”

Trump also tweeted about the lack of vetting, asking how a person who hates America so much was allowed to slip through the system, referring to the Manhattan bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami.

Trump hit out at CNN Monday, for editing out comments Hillary Clinton made about the ‘bombing’ in New York, then criticizing Trump’s own use of the word ‘bomb’.

He pointed out that the media had used the attacks to prop up Clinton and attack him simultaneously.

“CNN is disgusting and disgraceful, I watch all of it.” Trump said.

“CNN is so disgusting and dishonest,” Trump continued adding, “It’s so unfair, they call it the Clinton news network.”

“You saw her in the back of the plane, and she used the words ‘bombs’ also.” Trump said, noting “I heard I was criticized for calling it correctly.”

“I should be a news caster because I called it before the news.” Trump added.
