On Wednesday, January 11, 2017, Trump announced to a CNN reporter that there was FAKE news reported during the press conference. His exact blunt words were, “Your organization is terrible.” CNN was shocked and felt attacked for they wanted President Trump to give them a question. Trump quickly replied, “Don’t be rude. No, I am not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
Why is CNN fake news? Well, on Tuesday, January 10, 2017, CNN had given fake news that reported that the Russian government is gathering gruesome information about President Trump. Buzzfeed had published this information about what the Russian government had said without getting the correct story. Trump also tweeted Tuesday night about CNN news. “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!” is exactly what his tweet said.
During his press conference, he told people how much of a disgrace it was and how ridiculous it is. He is so mad about it that he angrily said, “That is something that the Nazi Germany (sic) who have done and did it.” He also describes how Buzzfeed is a lie as well, and CNN is doing everything they can to bring it back.
