A Miami Herald reporter is facing criticism today after tweeting and then deleting comments regarding the coronavirus killing Republican voters.
In a tweet posted over the weekend, Fabiola Santiago, a columnist for the Miami Herald, wrote that “packed beaches should work nicely to thin the ranks of Trump/DeSantis/Gimenez supporters in #Florida who value money over wealth.”
The tweet was shortly deleted, but the internet is written in pen.
In response to the words from Santiago, Trump Victory Spokesperson Emma Vaughn commented that “as if constant bias wasn’t enough, the liberal media is now openly wishing for illness and death of supporters of President Trump.”
She added that “this deeply inappropriate statement – which the Miami Herald should fully condemn – encapsulates why trust in the American media is at an all-time low.”
The Miami Herald has not released a statement regarding Santiago’s comments.
