Misleading Daily Kos Headline: “Trump Threatens To Invade Mexico”

Several MSM outlets picked this story up, ensuring “Threaten” was to be used in every on of their headlines describing the President’s words. Daily Kos peddled this misleading headline over an opening paragraph that ended with: “Donald Trump has threatened to invade them. Two weeks into his Presidency. Think about that.”. Yet, in almost every article, it is admitted that Mexico thought “The tone was constructive and it was agreed by the presidents to continue working and that the teams will continue to meet frequently to construct an agreement that is positive for Mexico and for the United States.”. Furthermore, from multiple segments of leadership/foreign relations, there was an understanding (on Mexico’s behalf) that Trump was not being threatening.
