President Donald Trump is taking aim at the “fake news” he says he gets from the media by tweeting a link to a Washington Post article.
“Fake news,” Trump wrote, in the tweet Tuesday, adding that “the Fake News Media is trying to say that my people are being attacked and beaten.
In the Washington Post’s Sunday cover story, Trump is quoted as saying, “My people are in big trouble, and the Fake News is attacking us.
I am not doing a good job, but it’s all fake news.”
He also says he has a plan to “fix the media,” but that the “big problem” is the way the media covers his administration.
He says the Post is “fake,” and “a total political rag” and that he’s going to “stop the fake news from spreading.”
“The Fake News will stop spreading fake news, and I will stop it when I get into office,” Trump said in the Washington article.
Trump also used the article to call out the mainstream media.
“It is a total political piece of garbage that has gotten away with murder for so long,” Trump tweeted.
“They have become a joke.”
He’s also been feuding with CNN.
Trump has repeatedly accused the network of not covering him well during his 2016 campaign, and he recently said CNN had “done a complete disservice” to him.
CNN also recently lost a $100 million lawsuit over its coverage of Trump.
