Sept.4,2017--The United Nations high commissioner for human rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein denounced American President Donald Trump's criticism and offensive speeches against the U.S. media at a press conference on August 30th.
 
“Mr. Trump derogated three major American news organizations such as the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN and their journalists,” said Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein.
 
He said the president’s “demonization” of the news media press was poisonous because it has consequences elsewhere. Trump’s “repeated attack” on media could be an incitement for some extremists to attack journalists and impair the freedom of press in America.
