Trump also praised Drudge for a lead headline touting the strong economy, noting that "it was the number one story on Drudge, 44-year low unemployment. I saw that in very big letters and … that makes me very proud.”

The Drudge Report regularly places headlines favorable to the president on the site, which is visited by more than 2 million people per day.
