In a latest attack on the American media, the United States President Donald Trump said that he would probably terminate the New York Times and Washington Post from the White House, calling them ‘fake’.
Trump’s remarks came on Monday night while exclusively speaking to Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.
“The media is corrupt. Not all the media. I know some great people, including you (Hannity), but I know some great journalists,” Trump said when asked about the media.
“They give Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong and all these people from the New York Times which is a fake newspaper. We don’t even want it in the White House anymore, and we’re probably going to terminate that and The Washington Post from the White House, they are fake. Take a look at the New York Times and the kind of reporting they do. They turn out to be all wrong,” he added.
However, Trump did not give any other details about the termination. It was also not known immediately whether he was removing the journalists of the two mentioned newspapers or ending their subscriptions at the White House.
Trump also spoke about the ongoing House Democrats led impeachment inquiry against him. He reiterated that the whistleblower claims of him speaking to Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian leader,
in a July 25 phone call, asking for dirt on rival Joe Biden, were all lies.
He also called Hillary Clinton crazy for calling Democrat candidate and Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian asset.
