President Trump slammed the media in a radio interview Friday, saying that they make up sources for stories.


“In many cases they literally make up sources,” Trump told WABC radio. “You know, ‘Nine sources within the White House have said …'”

“There are no nine sources. So, I just think that I want to get it straightened out with the press before I do it so it’s probably pretty unlikely I won’t do it. I didn’t do it last year. I had a rally instead, which was great.”

The president also said that last year’s White House correspondents dinner was “a massive failure.”
