Trump slams ‘fake news’ on fake news: ‘We have real news’
Donald Trump slammed “fake news” during a rally in North Carolina on Tuesday night, telling the crowd he “has real news” and that it “was not fake news.”
“I have real facts, not fake facts.
I know the real facts,” Trump said to cheers, adding that the media is “so dishonest.”
Trump was referencing a speech he gave in Raleigh in August, during which he blasted the media for the negative coverage heaped on his administration and its perceived lack of legitimacy.
“It is not fake, it is real,” Trump told the crowd, saying that “it was not fake.”
“They didn’t cover my inauguration.
They didn’t talk about my inauguration, they didn’t even cover my victory speech.
They covered my inauguration for eight months,” he added.
“But you know what?
You can say anything, but it doesn’t matter.”
Trump also criticized the media and said he has “a lot of real news,” which he has shared on Twitter.
“So you are so afraid of me that you are not saying anything,” Trump shouted.
“You are not even listening to what I say.
You have no idea what I have to say.”
