In response to media criticism and perceived “fake news”, President Trump has suggested creating “our own worldwide network” for the U.S. to fight against “unfair” media.
In typical fashion, President Trump took to Twitter to air his grievances saying that CNN “doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings,” and that “outside of the U.S. they have very little competition,” so they have a “powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way.”
This can be confirmed by CNN’s own website which declares itself as the internationally “most widely distributed news channel,” reaching over 200 countries compared to Fox News which only reaches about 100 countries.
“Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!” Trump also tweeted.
