President Donald Trump fired off a series of tweets Sunday morning in response to media outlet's news coverage of his eldest son Donald Trump Jr.
With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2017
In a earlier tweet the president asked why his son was being "scorned by the Fake News Media" and compared media outlet's coverage of Hillary Clinton's email scandal to Trump Jr.'s emails on meeting with the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Trump Jr. is under intense scrutiny after releasing his emails chain with Rob Goldstone last week. The two talked about setting up a meeting with the Russian lawyer in order for Trump Jr. to obtain incriminating evidence on Hillary Clinton and her dealings with Russia.
The Senate judiciary committee is requesting for Trump Jr. to testify in a pubic session about the meeting last year. The president and his eldest son have repeatedly criticized the negative media coverage of the White House administration and the president's aides.
The failing @nytimes writes false story after false story about me. They don't even call to verify the facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2017
The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2017
Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story. If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 11, 2017
