From social media, former President Donald Trump is now taking shots at “lamestream” media. The Republican went ballistic at news media outlets Sunday, as he mocked several cable news channels for continued drops in ratings. Trump said that the demise of the national press would be great news for the United States.
In a statement issued Sunday, Trump said he’s proud to inform everybody that “lamestream media” hit its lowest approval ratings ever recorded. He added that he thought it fair to say he helped bring mainstream media’s numbers down. They are not only “dishonest and corrupt,” he added, but “they are truly, according to a recent poll, the enemy of the people.”
The HIll tried to clarify which poll and which media outlets Trump referred to. However, recent surveys show that Americans are becoming more distrustful of social media. Many Americans also blame mainstream news outlets for increasing the political divide of the country.
Cable News Channels Also Going Down
In addition, Trump took potshots at cable news channels that are often critical of him. “In a similar category, CNN’s ratings are down a whopping, and record-setting, 79% and likewise, horrible numbers at MSDNC (Joe Scarborough and his lovely wife, Mika, are at record lows). These developments are great news for the American People,” he added.
During his campaign sorties and his four-year stay at the White House, Trump frequently clashed with the media. He often calls out reporters by name when he gets bad press, and
During his two presidential campaigns and four years in the White House, Trump regularly sparred with journalists covering his administration, oftentimes calling reporters out by name. He also likes it when his supporters jeer media members covering his rallies and campaign events.
Witch Hunt Continues Against Him
The former president said that lamestream media conspired with Democrats to rig the elections against him last year. In addition, the continued investigations on companies he owns on business dealings are “fake news” in their entirety.
All these efforts by the current government and the lamestream media constitute a political witch hunt against him.
Trump said the media was complicit in a conspiracy to “rig” the election against him last year. He has also said that investigative reporting on his company's financial dealings and business practices was “fake news” and a continuation of a political “witch hunt” against him.
Trump Didn’t Lose The Suburbs
Trump referred to a New York Times story over the weekend about how suburban US voters turned from him to Biden during the 2020 elections. “The Fake News Media continuously likes stating that I lost the ‘suburbs.' How would this be possible when I was the one that stopped the low-income housing agenda of Obama/Biden, already enacted, from happening there,” Trump said.
He added: “The suburbs would have been destroyed—but they continuously fail to mention that I got 12 million more votes than I did in 2016, a record for a sitting President along with the 75 million votes, also a record.
So how did that happen and how come I ‘lost'? This is just more Fake News. And remember, they can say all of this, including the suburbs nonsense because we had a Rigged Election!”
Reinstate Trump As President
Currently, Trump continues to push his case for reinstatement as President. He continues to appeal to friendly conservative media to support his cause of getting back his job by the end of summer.
Even as Republican polls show massive support if he decides to run again for President, Trump has yet to formally announce his plans for 2024. “It's not that I want to. The country needs it. We have to take care of this country. I don't want to. Is this fun? Fighting constantly? Fighting always? I mean, the country, what we have done is so important,” he added.
