President Donald Trump will postpone his Fake News awards to January 17 from a scheduled date of Monday.

The president first announced the awards on Jan 2 but scant details were released from the White House on how exactly the process would work. “My guess is that there are quite a few individuals that could be up for those awards. And beyond that, I think we’ll have to see what happens,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Wednesday.

The president vented in late November that a contest should be held for the worst political coverage, excluding Fox News. He added that the winner of such an award should get a “fake news trophy.”
