"They're Fake": Donald Trump's Latest Attack On New York Times, Washington Post

Washington: US President Donald Trump, in his latest attack on the American media, has said that he would "probably terminate" the New York Times and the Washington Post from the White House because "they're fake".  

Donald Trump said this while exclusively speaking to Fox News anchor Sean Hannity on Monday night.

"The media is corrupt. Not all the media. I know some great people, including you (Hannity), but I know some great journalists," he said when asked about the media. 

"They give Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong and all these people from the New York Times which is a fake newspaper. We don't even want it in the White House anymore, and we're probably going to terminate that and The Washington Post from the White House, they are fake.

"Take a look at the New York Times and the kind of reporting they do. They turn out to be all wrong," the President added.

Donald Trump did not give any other details of the termination and it was not immediately known if he was removing the journalists of the two papers or ending their subscriptions at the White House.

Besides attacking the media, he also spoke about the ongoing House Democrats-led impeachment inquiry against him, reiterating that the whistleblower claims of him speaking to his Ukrainian counterpart in a July 25 phone call, asking for dirt on rival Joe Biden, were all "lies".

He even called his 2016 rival Hillary Clinton "crazy" for calling Democrat candidate and Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard a "Russian asset".

Trump: Between the Hatred and Love of Many

The opinion poll results don't have the last word, although they do give some signs impossible to ignore.

A survey published this Sunday by The Washington Post and the ABC television network repeat the Donald Trump’s edge for the coming 2020 elections.

The approval rate rises to 47%, "the highest since he took office at the White House."

This supports the work the president is doing from the White House, and it supposes an increment since April, when 42% affirmed the same.

However, the investigation also reveals that half of registered voters disapprove Donald Trump’s form of governing.

Also, 65% of interviewed considers that he acts in a way "that is not common in the president of the United States."

At the same time, only 28% believes that he behaves in a "suitable and appropriate manner".

However, according to the interpretation of the Post, the survey shows that Trump has a "narrow path" that could take him to be reelected in the coming elections.

There is a very important lesson here, it would be mistaken to apply on the North American society the same scale of values than to other societies.

When the president acts in an extremely severe fashion against Central American immigrants it causes the applause of those who support him.

.

Besides causing exasperation among those who favor to aid the human rights.

And that shows its results in public opinion polls.

It helps to understand that more than 50% of the consulted North Americans have a positive approach on measures executed by Trump whose outcome has benefitted the full employment.

Nevertheless, 42% rejects his administration and last October figures went to 46%.

When asked on how much trust Trump deserved for the patched health of his economy, 47% responded that "mostly", while the 48% affirmed that "only a little" or "almost nothing."

At the same time, in the foreign policy area, between 40-55% of the consulted North Americans have a negative opinion about it.

The survey was elaborated through phone interviews between June 28th and last July 1st.

At present there isn’t a fairly believable prognosis on the direction that will follow the 2020 elections.
