President TrumpDonald John TrumpMulvaney: 'We've overreacted a little bit' to coronavirus Former CBS News president: Most major cable news outlets 'unrelentingly liberal' in 'fear and loathing' of Trump An old man like me should be made more vulnerable to death by COVID-19 MORE lashed out at the media Saturday night, accusing “The LameStream Media” of publishing “numerous phony stories.”

“The LameStream Media had a very bad week. They pushed numerous phony stories and got caught, especially The Failing New York Times, which has lost more money over the last 10 years than any paper in history, and The Amazon Washington Post. They are The Enemy of the People!” Trump tweeted. 

Trump also accused the “Fake News Media” of being “partners” of Democrats.

“The Fake News Media nowadays not only doesn’t check for the accuracy of the facts, they knowingly make up the facts. They even make up sources in order to protect their partners, the Democrats. It is so wrong, but they don’t even care anymore. They have gone totally CRAZY!!!!” Trump tweeted.

Trump's latest tweets didn't specify what reports he was referencing but the New York Times and Washington Post have both published stories that drew the president's ire over the past week.

Trump criticized the media Friday and Saturday over a story, first reported by the Washington Post, of a whistleblower complaint that alleged a troubling conversation between the president and a world leader. Later reporting said the complaint may have involved Ukraine.

Trump called the reports a “Ukraine Witch Hunt.”


“Now that the Democrats and the Fake News Media have gone “bust” on every other of their Witch Hunt schemes, they are trying to start one just as ridiculous as the others, call it the Ukraine Witch Hunt, while at the same time trying to protect Sleepy Joe Biden. Will fail again!” Trump tweeted.
