President Donald Trump’s official Instagram account posted a video on October 16, 2019 showing an ABC News Special Report of intense gunfire with a caption of “Slaughter in Syria” that ABC News reported apparently showed the fury of a Turkish attack on the border town of Tell Abiad in Syria. ABC claimed the night video was obtained by ABC News. Since the news broadcast aired last Sunday October 13, 2019 and Monday October 14, 2019, the video has been determined to be clips from video of a Machine Gun Shoot in West Point, Kentucky — not to be confused with the United States Military Academy, also known as West Point in New York.
The president’s Instagram video also included a clip of ABC anchor David Muir cautioning about the danger of Fake News. The video ends with a clip of Trump exclaiming, “You are Fake News.”
The Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot released video in 2014 compiling video from four previous years at the event.
The video above includes music segments from ‘Stranglehold’ by Artist Ted Nugent, a gun advocate and graduate of St Viator High School in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
Best of Knob Creek Footage HD from October 2013 — includes the comment, “there are bad ideas, then there are ‘invade the American mainland’ bad ideas”.
ABC News issued a correction and apology Monday, October 14, 2019, reporting the network incorrectly described video from a Kentucky gun range as a fierce battle between Syrian Kurds and Turkish forces.
ABC News aired the video on Sunday night and Monday morning claiming it obtained battlefield video. The video has since been confirmed as video from a night gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky — southwest of Louisville and just north of the edge of Fort Knox military reservation.
