Donald Trump Says These Are the Biggest Stories the Media Has Ignored

Donald Trump Says These Are the Biggest Stories the Media Has Ignored
08 May

During his time on the campaign trail and in office, Donald Trump has made it his modus operandi to attack the media. Some Americans love that about the president. Others hate it. But Trump doesn’t show any signs of dropping his war cry of “fake news.” Neither does he seem to want to stop his criticism of the media’s mistakes. And he doesn’t seem likely to rethink his own relationship with the truth. Trump also seems unlikely to drop his (often-satirized) habit of accusing the media of not reporting the real news and ignoring the biggest stories.


Below, check out the biggest stories that Donald Trump thinks the media buried, under-reported, or flat-out ignored.

In the kerfuffle over the size of Donald Trump’s inauguration crowd, Trump and his administration claimed that the spectators in attendance at the event constituted the largest inauguration crowd ever. That didn’t turn out to be true. But Trump hasn’t dropped it. Or at least not entirely.

The president still believes that the media doesn’t devote enough attention to the crowds of supporters who greet him at various events. Early in 2017, Donald Trump tweeted, “Just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road that the FAKE NEWS media refuses to mention. Very dishonest!”

Next: Donald Trump thinks that journalists don’t talk enough about this kind of news.
