President Trump on Monday, July 22, criticized The Washington Post for making up a story regarding tweets that he made on the four congresswomen to “go back,” which he totally denied.

“The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News. They said, ‘Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four congresswomen.’ Now really, does that sound like me? What advisers, there were no talking points except for those stated by me, & ‘reams of paper’ were never given to me. It is a made up story meant to demean & belittle. The Post had no sources. The facts remain the same, that we have 4 Radical Left Congresswomen who have said very bad things about Israel & our Country!” the president said.

The president’s tweet is in response to an article by The Washington Post published on July 21, writing about the president, his team, and related personnel and their reaction about his tweets telling the four congresswomen to “go back.”

The Post reported, “President Trump’s own top aides didn’t think he fully understood what he had done” and the president’s inner circle team was surprised by the reaction and felt unsure how to handle them.

The Washington Post claims the article, “is based on interviews with 26 White House aides, advisers, lawmakers and others involved in the response.”

The president said that all the messages to four congresswomen were straight from him, not from advisers as in The Washington Post article, saying it had no sources. 

The president then continued to criticize mainstream media, saying, “The Mainstream Media is out of control. They constantly lie and cheat in order to get their Radical Left Democrat views out their for all to see. It has never been this bad. They have gone bonkers, & no longer care what is right or wrong. This large scale false reporting is sick!” 

The president has continued to clash with mainstream media for the beginning of his presidency but this is the first time he has mentioned, “It has never been this bad.”

This follows a tweet on July 21 when the president also criticized The Washington Post regarding his North Carolina rally.
