‘Fake News Media’: Trump continues attack on media over Russian case

By |

The popularity of the reality-star-turned-president is at its lowest ebb

Donald Trump’s misadventure with American media continues even after six months of his elevation as the President of the United States.

According to latest reports, the popularity of the reality-star-turned-president is at its lowest ebb and the new revelations about his son, Donald Trump Jr’s Russian links, have forced the relationship with media to further deteriorate.

On Sunday, President Trump tweeted that what media is propagating about his son’s relation ties is outright “fake”.

“HillaryClinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?” Trump posted on his Twitter account.

The tweet supporting his son came after he denied any of his aids involved with Russians in conspiring against his Democratic presidential election counterpart Hillary Clinton during the hard-fought election last year.

“With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!” the president tweeted on Sunday.

Ironically, the current commotion and commotion is the result of Donald Trump Jr, recent email revelations, in which he eagerly welcomed the idea of damaging information about Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

Trump also took to Twitter to thank one of his campaign advisors, Michael Caputo, who during his session with the House of Representatives’ Intelligence Committee said “powerfully” that there “was no Russian collusion” in his presidential victory.

On Friday, Caputo, who was the communications adviser to Trump during the presidential campaign, testified as a witness in the investigation about suspected Russian links. He denied any claims that the Trump campaign had received Russian assistance during the November election.

Caputo, who has a history of living in Russia for several years, during a CNN interview days before he testified to the committee, said that “No one ever breathed the word ‘Russia’ to me.”

Caputo lived in Moscow for several years during the 1990s, and CNN reports claim that he has worked for the Kremlin and still has business interests in Russia.
