Donald Trump falsely accused CNN of coaching a victim of a school shooting in Parkland, Florida after he watched a misleading story on Tucker Carlson's show on Fox News. Carlson interviewed a shooting survivor whose father refused to let him participate in a nationally televised town hall on CNN after CNN said he could not read an extensive speech before asking a question. CNN also released a statement which read "[t]here is absolutely no truth to this. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night’s town hall, nor have we ever.”
