Trump: “I Use Social Media to ‘Fight’ Back Against Media


Donald Trump on Saturday cast his use of Twitter as a necessity to fight back against “dishonest and unfair” news coverage.

“I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair ‘press,’ now often referred to as Fake News Media,” he tweeted. “Phony and non-existent ‘sources’ are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!”

Trump has routinely clashed with the media since the early days of his presidential campaign, and has often reignited feuds with news outlets that cover his administration critically.

In particular, he’s directed his ire at newspapers such as The Washington Post and The New York Times. He’s also gone after networks, including CNN, which he has derided as dishonest and partisan.
