Donald Trump accuses media of fabricating news


Air Force One touched down on United States soil at 9pm Saturday night carrying the president and first lady, and the New York Times details some of the crises awaiting his attention, in particular reports that son-in-law Jared Kushner was in contact with Russians during the campaign.

With the news that his son-in-law Jared Kushner allegedly tried to open a secret line of communication with Russian Federation during the Trump transition and with unrelenting criticism continuing to bounce around his administration from all corners, Trump said early Sunday morning he thinks the media are fabricating their stories.

Yet in a blizzard of tweets on Sunday, the president denounced the media's use of unnamed sources as "fake news", and again took aim at reporters as "the enemy".

President Donald Trump is considering overhauling his White House staff and bringing back top campaign strategists, frustrated by what he views as his team's inability to contain the burgeoning crisis involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

President Trump then piled on the media bias in the coverage of this week's Montana congressional race, saying it was treated as "a big deal" by Democrats and "fake news" media "until the Republican won".


Reports have also surfaced recently that Trump shared classified intelligence with Russian officials and asked former FBI Director James Comey to end a federal investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

White House officials defended the concept of secret communications channels without commenting specifically on the Kushner case.

Trump is back on his bullshit, y'all. "Any way that you can communicate with people, particularly organizations that are maybe not particularly friendly to us, is a good thing".

Mr Kelly told Fox News Sunday there was nothing wrong with the Trump transition team trying to build relationships with the Russians as they prepared to take over the White House.

Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN he doubted the Kushner reports were accurate. "They are not our friends".
