Trump: I gave 'Face the Nation' highest ratings 'since the World Trade Center came down'

President Trump says he gave CBS's "Face The Nation" its highest ratings "since the World Trade Center came down."

During an interview with the Associated Press, Trump touted his ratings, saying that when he appears on different networks, the shows' audiences grow.

"On any, on air, [CBS 'Face the Nation' host John] Dickerson had 5.2 million people. It's the highest for 'Face the Nation' or as I call it, 'Deface the Nation,'" Trump said during the interview.

"It's the highest for 'Deface the Nation' since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It's a tremendous advantage."

The president also said he got high ratings when he appeared on Fox News host Chris Wallace's Sunday show.

"I have, seem to get very high ratings. I definitely. You know Chris Wallace had 9.2 million people, it's the highest in the history of the show," the president said of his appearance on the program.

"I have all the ratings for all those morning shows. Chris Wallace, look back during the Army-Navy football game, I did his show that morning."

The president said he gets treated "very unfairly" by the media, but praised Fox News for its coverage.
 
"The fake media is some of you. I could tell you who it is, 100 percent," he said.
 
"Sometimes you're fake, but — but the fake media is some of the media. It bears no relationship to the truth. It's not that Fox treats me well, it's that Fox is the most accurate."
  
The president often rails on the media, accusing reporters of biased and dishonest coverage against him and referring to some networks as "fake news."
