Trump: Media ‘Dishonesty Is Out Of Control’

President Trump held another contentious press conference at the White House on Thursday, when he accused reporters of “dishonesty” and “fake news,” according to Newsmax.

“I’m making this presentation directly to the American people … because many of our nation's reporters and folks will not tell you the truth,” Trump said. “The press has become so dishonest that if we don't talk about it we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to find out what's going on because the press honestly is out of control. I ran for president to represent the citizens of our country. I am here to change the broken system so it serves their families and their communities well. I am talking and really talking on this very entrenched power structure.”

After calling on CNN’s Jim Acosta for a question, the president repeated his previous allegation that the television network provides “fake news.” He told Acosta: “The reporting is fake. Jim, you know what it is. Here's the thing, the public isn't — they read newspapers, they see television, they watch, they don't know if it's true or false because they are not involved … I’m involved. I've been involved with this stuff all my life, so I know when you are telling the truth or when you are not.”

Trump was not done ridiculing the media. He added: “I just see many, many untruthful things. I will tell you what else I see. I see tone. You know the word ‘tone.’ The tone is such hatred. I want to see an honest press. When I started out by saying it's important for the public to get an honest press. The public doesn't believe you people anymore. But if you were straight, I would be your biggest booster. I would be your biggest fan.”

Newsmax pointed out that the stated reason for the press conference was to introduce Alexander Acosta, whom Trump nominated for labor secretary after his first pick withdrew his name from consideration.
