US President Donald Trump has again lashed out at CNN, calling it "bad" and "fake" after he had been "forced" to watch it, while being in the Philippines.
While in the Philippines I was forced to watch @CNN, which I have not done in months, and again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is. Loser!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 15 ноября 2017 г.
He went on to praise his favorite TV channel, Fox News, that would be "showing much of our successful trip to Asia, and the friendships & benefits that will endure for years to come!"
Our great country is respected again in Asia. You will see the fruits of our long but successful trip for many years to come!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 15 ноября 2017 г.
Since Trump assumed office, many US media outlets, including CNN, have accused the US president's team of allegedly having ties to the Kremlin, with Trump refuting these allegations and labeling the media involved in these speculations "fake news."
Previously, the US president slammed the "failing" The New York Times, as well as CNN, NBC ABC and CBS over allegedly being "the enemy of the American People" and several other US media outlets over "fake news" reports and called for a probe into US media spreading "fake news."
In summer, Trump posted a video of himself "beating" a person whose face had been replaced by a CNN logo.
According to another poll conducted by renowned French pollster Ifop, 59 percent of Americans believe that MSM coverage of international and domestic agenda in their country is biased.
