Since becoming President Trump has made some very wild statements which are controversial.
On the 16th February during a press conference Trump said the following to Jim Acosta after being accused of undermining the media by calling it ‘fake news’ every time he disagreed with a news story:
“See, I know when I should get good and when I should get bad. Sometimes they’ll say, wow, that’s going to be a great story. And I’ll get killed. I know what’s good and bad. I’d be a pretty good reporter. Not as good as you.
But I know what’s good. I know what’s bad. And when they change it and make it really bad, something that should be positive sometimes that should be positive, they’ll make OK. They’ll even make it negative. So I understand it. So because I’m there. I know what was said, I know who was saying it. I’m there. So it’s very important to me.
Look, I want to see an honest press. And I started off today by saying that it’s so important to the public to get an honest press. The press the public doesn’t believe you people anymore. Now maybe I had something to do with that. I don’t know. But they don’t believe you. If you were straight and really told it like it is, as Howard Cosell used to say, right? Of course, he had some questions also. But if you were straight, I would be your biggest booster. I would be your biggest fan in the world, including bad stories about me.
But if you go — as an example, you’re CNN, I mean, it’s story after story after story is bad. I won. I won. And the other thing, chaos. There’s zero chaos. We are running — this is a fine-tuned machine. And Reince happens to be doing a good job, but half of his job is putting out lies by the press. You know, I said to him yesterday, this whole Russia scam that you guys are building so that you don’t talk about the real subject, which is illegal leaks. But I watched him yesterday working so hard to try and get that story proper. And I’m saying here’s my chief of staff, a really good guy, did a phenomenal job at RNC. I mean, won the election, right? Won the presidency. We got some senators, we got some — all over the country, you take a look. He’s done a great job”. CNN transcript
