‘Very Dangerous & Sick’: Trump Lashes Out at ‘Fake News’ Media, Warns They Can Cause War

President Trump lashed out at the mainstream media again, saying that the “fake news” is attacking him for his “enemy of the people” comment “because they know it’s true.” He also called them “sick and dangerous.”

“The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE,” US President Donald Trump tweeted. “I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People.”

The media, Trump said, “purposely cause great division and distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous and sick!”

In a subsequent tweet, he reiterated the accusations: “Too bad a large portion of the Media refuses to report the lies and corruption having to do with the Rigged Witch Hunt – but that is why we call them FAKE NEWS!”

President Trump unleashed a sweeping crusade against “fake news” before he even took office, going so far as refusing to answer questions from reporters and media outlets that he accuses of disseminating fake news.

President Trump’s war with the fake news is more than justified. They had it out for him when he first announced he was running for president.

Prior to Donald Trump running for president the media’s coverage of him and his family was positive. Trump could find the cure to cancer and bring world peace and the mainstream media would still find a reason to bash him mercilessly.
