President Trump slammed the American media during a press conference in Charlevoix, Canada on Saturday.
He described many people in the establishment media as “very dishonest.”
A reporter asked, “In Canada you attacked the U.S. press back home but you have also done it on foreign soil. I would like to ask why you do that?”
“The U.S. press is very dishonest, much of it, not all of it,” Trump said.
“I have some folks in your profession, with the U.S., in the U.S., citizens, proud citizens, reporters, the most outstanding people I know. But there are many people in the press that are unbelievably dishonest, they don’t cover stories the way they’re supposed to be, they don’t even report them in many cases, if they’re positive. So there’s tremendous–I came up with the term ‘fake news,’ it’s a lot of fake news. But at the same time I have great respect for many of the people in the press.”
