President Trump: Fake news is distorting democracy


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.

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.
