Trump: The Fake News Wants To Prevent My Reelection

The Hill reports:

President Trump early Sunday lashed out at the news media, accusing it of trying to hurt his reelection chances. The comments from Trump came after a tumultuous week in which the tit-for-tat trade war between the U.S. and China escalated further.

The president on Friday triggered a drop in U.S. stock markets and ignited deeper concerns about an economic downturn after calling on American companies to stop doing business with China. As the economy has shown signs of a potential recession, Trump has repeatedly directed his ire on the media.
