After President Trump Slams CNN, James Comey Posts "Freedom of Press"

  • President Donald Trump speaks to the media before speaking with members of the armed forces via video conference at his private club Mar-a-Lago on Thanksgiving in Palm Beach Fla. Trump says he's

On Saturday, Trump sent a tweet that again criticized CNN, although he also recognized the network's global influence. "The outside world does not see the truth from them!" the president tweeted.

Donald Trump on Saturday went to Twitter and focused on an enemy he loves to hate-CNN.

From CNN's Twitter account, the organization clarified their position as an enterprise by stating that their "job is to report the news", and Trump's job is to represent the United States to the rest of the globe, not CNN.


Trump's tweet is his latest attack on CNN, which he branded earlier this year as "fake news". Fox News, he said, is "MUCH more important" in the United States than CNN, but outside of the US, "CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news". It took no time for CNN to fire back at Trump, and the internet is loving the network's response. CNN's Christiane Amanpour would know - she tweeted a video of herself running away from the sound of bullets while reporting overseas. Until now it was not possible for me to conceive of an American President capable of such an outrageous assault on truth, a free press or the first amendment.

"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost".

Trump's tweet-thanks to Maga Pill came three days into the president's Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Florida, a getaway stuffed with golf and media rumination.
