While speaking at a meeting honoring Black History Month on Wednesday, President Trump said doesn’t watch CNN because he doesn’t like “watching fake news.”
“Last month we celebrated the life of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., an incredible example, unique in American history,” Trump said. “You read all about Dr. Martin Luther King a week ago when somebody said I took the statue out of my office. And it turned out that that was fake news. Fake news.”
“The statue is cherished,” he said.
“It’s one of the favorite things in the, and we have some good ones, we have Lincoln and we have Jefferson, and we have Dr. Martin Luther King, and we have — But they said the statue, the bust of Dr. Martin Luther King was taken out of the office. And it was never even touched,” he said.
“So I think it was a disgrace. But that’s the way the press is, very unfortunate.”
“I don’t watch CNN,” Trump went on to say, adding, “I don’t like watching fake news.”
