President Donald Trump has been having a good time lately, as his enemies seem to be losing one battle after another against him. It started with the Georgia special elections last week where the Democratic candidate lost big time, despite all the money and positive media attention poured on him.
Then the US Supreme Court allowed some parts of Trump’s controversial travel ban to take effect, after lower courts had frozen it for months. Then yesterday, CNN had to apologise for an anti Trump story and had to fire/ accept resignations of 3 of its journalists over the story. From what sources are saying
, Donald Trump’s regular response to CNN attacks – calling the network ‘Fake News’ appears to have severely dented CNN’s credibility. In Nigeria it is called ‘bad market’.
Now Donald Trump is taking the battle to other enemies in the media. In the past few hours he has blasted both the New York Times and the Washington Post as ‘fake news’. He took to Twitter to attack both mainstream media organizations. See below:
The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!

The failing @nytimes writes false story after false story about me. They don’t even call to verify the facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!
By now it is clear that when Trump talks a large portion of the American population support what he says, quietly. So, these two organizations should seek a quick truce with Trump. His words can be damaging.
