Trump And Putin Bond On “Getting Rid” Of Journalists

The Independent reports:

Donald Trump has joked with Vladimir Putin during a meeting at the G20 in Japan over their shared disdain for journalists who write stories they do not approve of.

“Get rid of them. Fake news is a great term, isn’t it? You don’t have this problem in Russia, but we do,” Mr Trump was quoted as telling Mr Putin.

“We also have. It’s the same,” Mr Putin responded in English, before both laughed. Trump has consistently and repeatedly branded as “fake news” reporting – often demonstrably accurate reporting – which casts him in negative light.
