The New York Times today tweeted that President Trump was outraged that UC Berkeley canceled a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos. However, failed to provide any evidence that the President ever said that.
In fact, in their article, there was no mention of Trump’s outrage over the cancellation, because he wasn’t outraged over the cancellation, but over the violent protests, rioting and assaults that occurred afterwards and were not stopped by the administration.

In fact, this is the message Trump sent out. The President was very clear in his message.
“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view-NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” is what he said.
