BBC News has dangerously misheard President Donald Trump during his recent speech to the United Nations General Assembly.

 

The President told the Assembly, “Last month we began reimposing hard-hitting nuclear sanctions that had been lifted under the Iran deal. Additional sanctions will resume November 5th and more will follow.”

But that’s not what the public broadcaster heard. Instead the official BBC News (World) Twitter account incorrectly claimed: “Donald Trump tells UN General Assembly ‘war will follow’ after his decision to re-impose sanctions on Iran, who he accuses of ‘slaughter in Syria and Yemen.'”

Almost an hour later BBC News realised their mistake and tweeted: “Clarification: Donald Trump’s actual words appear to be ‘more will follow.”

Paul Joseph Watson responded to the original tweet saying, “Yet another example of actual, dangerous, fake news, while they all point the finger at independent media for fake news. And taxpayers pay for this crap.”
