Washington: United States President Donald Trump has ripped into the “fake media” during a speech at an evening rally in at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. to honour American veterans.
“The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House, but I’m President and they’re not. We won, and they lost,” Trump said during the rally on Saturday.
“The dishonest media will never keep us from accomplishing our objections on behalf of our great American people. It will never happen. Their agenda is not your agenda, you`ve been saying it,” he said.
“The media have destroyed themselves by going too far. Instead of being subtle and smart, they used the hatchet, and the people saw it right from the beginning”, ABC News reported him saying.
Continuing his attack on Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, two days after he asseted on Twitter that Brzezinski had been “bleeding badly from a face-lift” during a social event last year.
The Us president also tweeted in defence of his use of the social media.
“My use of social media is not Presidential — it`s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!” he tweeted.
He also added, “Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!”
Trump also continued his blistering criticism of CNN in a series of tweets. He wrote, “I am extremely pleased to see that @CNN has finally been exposed as #FakeNews and garbage journalism. It`s about time!”
“I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!,” another of his tweet said.
