President Donald Trump on Friday suggested a slew of attempted
attacks on top Democrats and other public figures have distracted
the media from “talking politics” ahead of the 2018 midterm
elections, saying it has slowed Republican momentum.

“Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls,
and now this ‘Bomb’ stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows
– news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on.
Republicans, go out and vote!”

General Eric Holder, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, former Vice
