he President claims studies show that over 90 per cent of the media’s coverage of him is negative
Speaking on Twitter, the President said: “Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!”
CNN makes the list three times in total and coming in at number one is The New York Times’ Paul Krugman who claimed on the day of Trump’s victory that the economy would never recover.
At number two is ABC News’ Brian Ross who “sent markets in a downward spiral with a false report”.
In fourth place is Time which “falsely” reported that Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr from the Oval Office.
Number five is a story by Washington Post which said the President’s “massive sold-out rally” in Pensacola, Florida was empty.
Allegedly, the “dishonest reporter” showed pictures of the arena hours before the crowd appeared.

At number seven is CNN again, which reported investment banker Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in the process.”
Number eight is a report that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauster-Duda did not shake the President’s hand.
Yet another CNN story made the ninth sport, with a report that former FBI Director James Comey “would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation”.

And “last, but not least”, Donald Trump hits out against reports from the media of collusion with Russia.
To hit home the full effect, he even caps up some of the words: “And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”
He assembled the list to point out the bias but also lists his “achievements”.

“Together there is nothing we can’t overcome – even a very biased media. We ARE Making America Great Again!”

They also tout the “historic tax cuts” as a “relief for hardworking Americans” which has “not been seen since President Reagan”.
Trump’s plan to cut regulations has “exceeded ‘two out for everyone’ in the mandate, issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action”.
It is claimed Trump has unleashed an “American energy boom” by ending “Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR”.
Trump mentions ISIS being in retreat, having been “crushed in Iraq and Syria”.

Trump allegedly encouraged more member nations of Nato to contribute more to the budget.
The President has also established more “safeguards to protect whistleblowers” and kept a promise to appoint Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the US Supreme Court.
