‘It’s Modern Day Presidential.’ Donald Trump Defends His Use of Social Media

(BRIDGEWATER, N.J.) — President Donald Trump renewed his screed against the media on Saturday.

“The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media – but remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!” Trump said on Twitter.

And he said he was thinking about “changing the name of #FakeNewsCNN to #FraudNewsCNN.”

Trump’s continued focus on cable television comes as Republicans are struggling to find agreement on a health care overhaul, a key promise from the president and GOP lawmakers. And Trump is heading to the annual Group of 20 meeting this week, where he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a high-stakes encounter that could put Trump’s “America First” policy to the test.

(Why?)
