US President Donald Trump accused the US television channel CNN of spreading fake news.
“CNN’s fake news made a brutal and deliberate mistake yesterday, let’s see if CNN is being fired responsible for this, or was it just incompetence?” wrote the American president on twitter.
In another of his publications, Trump advised the television channel to change the slogan.
“CNN’s slogan is” CNN, the most reliable news. “Everyone knows that this is not true, and that, in fact, this is a fraud of the American public.There are many other media that are much more truthful than CNN’s fake news.They need to change the slogan to” CNN, the least reliable news,” said the US president.
Trump regularly criticizes CNN and a number of other American media, spreading, in his opinion, fake news about the work of the US administration.
In another tweet attacking Washington Post, he said “Weigel (Washington Post reporter) put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before he arrived at the venue, with thousands of people outside, on their way in. Real photos now shown as I spoke. Packed house, many people unable to get in.
Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!” said the US President as he posted pictures of the event.Weigel apologised within minutes, and tweeted, “Sure thing: I apologise. I deleted the photo after David Martosko of Daily Mail told me I’d gotten it wrong. Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner.” Despite Weigel’s apology, Trump in a follow-up tweet demanded that he be fired.
