US President Donald Trump has frequently complained about news media coverage that have criticised the president and his actions, labelling media houses as “Fake News Media.” On Tuesday, the US President renewed his tirade against news media, accusing media houses of being dirty via a tweet.
The Fake News Media has never been so wrong or so dirty. Purposely incorrect stories and phony sources to meet their agenda of hate. Sad!

The president didn’t mention which story was incorrect. However, US media is presently covering the ongoing Congressional investigation into the associations between Trump associates and the Russian government. The testimony of former FBI Director James Comey has also put the spotlight on the US President.
