President Trump returned to attacking the press on Twitter calling them the “opposition party” and accused them of working with the Democrats.????“The mainstream media has NEVER been more dishonest than it is now.
NBC and MSNBC are going Crazy.
They report stories, purposely, the exact opposite of the facts.
They are truly the Opposition Party working with the Dems. May even be worse than Fake News CNN, if that is possible!”????Trump, who took to social media after walking out on the latest meeting with Democratic leaders over negotiations to end the partial government shutdown, explained his latest gripe with the media in a follow-up tweet…????“Gave an OFF THE RECORD luncheon, somewhat of a White House tradition or custom, to network anchors yesterday - and they quickly leaked the contents of the meeting.
Who would believe how bad it has gotten with the mainstream media, which has gone totally bonkers!”????Comments reported from the media included the president doubting his prime-time address to the nation on immigration would help as he seeks over $5 billion in funding to build the southern border wall.
????The Washington Examiner also reports Trump said to the network anchors that his trip to the border in Texas was just a photo opportunity, but his communication staff thinks it will help in future talks with congressional Democrats over funding for the wall.
