What did Donald Trump do today?

He said that questioning him is what is "creating violence."

An ABC News reporter asked Trump to comment on a poll showing that 49% of Americans think his rhetoric is encouraging violence.

Trump responded, "No, no, you know what? You’re creating violence, by your questions."

Trump didn't specify which violence he thought that reporters asking questions of him had caused, but it's clear what violence was on his mind. Yesterday, Trump bitterly complained that acts of domestic terrorism—a mass murder of Jews targeted because of their synagogue's support for aiding refugees that Trump has demonized, and a campaign of pipe bombs mailed by an Trump rally-goer to Trump's favorite targets—were hurting Republicans' chances in the House.

So what?
