The Post—which was bought by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in 2013 for $250 million, and which openly opposes Trump—published an articleabout some of Trump’s recent spat with some Democratic Congresswomen, inserting opinion into the headline by calling the attacks “racist.” One line, in particular, stuck out to Trump.
“The Amazon Washington Post front-page story yesterday was total Fake News,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They said ‘Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.’ Now really, does that sound like me?”
“What advisors, there were no talking points except for those stated by me, & ‘reams of paper’ were never given to me. It is a made-up story meant to demean & belittle. The Post had no sources,” Trump added.
The president then noted that the Congresswomen—Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who many media outlets have taken pains to support—have made a number of inflammatory comments about Israel and America.
“The facts remain the same, that we have 4 Radical Left Congresswomen who have said very bad things about Israel & our Country!” Trump wrote. more here
