Trump: ‘Fake’ Media Is ‘Distorting Democracy’

President Donald Trump lashed out at the news media on Twitter Sunday morning, saying reporters are “distorting democracy” by using anonymous sources. “With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!” Trump tweeted. Officials in Trump’s administration often request anonymity when speaking with reporters. In an earlier tweet, he said his son, Donald Trump Jr., is being “scorned” for his meeting with Russians while Hillary Clinton “illegally [got] the questions to the Debate & [deleted] 33,000 emails.”
