( - As the liberal media blames Trump's "rhetoric" for the carnage in El Paso, Trump on Monday pointed a finger right back at the media.

He tweeted:

The Media has a big responsibility to life and safety in our Country. Fake News has contributed greatly to the anger and rage that has built up over many years. News coverage has got to start being fair, balanced and unbiased, or these terrible problems will only get worse!

In two more tweets, Trump advocated "strong background checks."

We cannot let those killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, die in vain. Likewise for those so seriously wounded. We can never forget them, and those many who came before them. Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying....this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!

CNN's "New Day" on Monday morning noted over and over again that Trump has not used the phrase "white supremacist terror," clearly wanting him to do so when he addresses the nation at 10 a.m.

Over on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," anchor Joe Scarborough told viewers, "There's nothing Donald Trump would love more than for race skirmishes to break out."
