Tuesday morning the President posted an attack on the media’s credibility. In a post on Twitter he said: “If I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH.”
The President has been tweeting up a storm this week beginning on Saturday and hasn’t stopped. The Hill reports:
Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that no one in the White House vets Trump’s tweets. Trump sent out a series of tweets Sunday and Monday criticizing the mayor of London after a terror attack in the city, and touting his “travel ban” on individuals from six majority-Muslim countries.
” I think social media for the President is extremely important. It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications,” Sanders said.
Well, despite the debacle on Monday with Kellyanne Conway’s husband the President seems resolute to posting on Twitter.
Since winning the GOP primary the President has fought with the media and after his latest comments that doesn’t seem to be coming to an end.
Do you think the media is losing credibility?
