Thursday/ Trump’s war with the press & TV

President Trump has waged war with the media and the press since Day One of his presidency, and it just seems to get even worse.

NBC and the networks hold themselves to the highest standards, while Trump tweets out blatant lies and distortions almost every day.¬† 2/3 of Americans think they are bad for the country.
