Trump launches its own "Real news" to counter the traditional media

Share

In 2016, a time when the chants of "Fake News" were just reaching their stride, The New York Times reported Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner met with an investment firm about possibly launching a Trump television network.

This is not the first time that Trump has used social media to sidestep the mainstream media and take his message directly to voters.

"Trump has spent the last week claiming that the economy that he says was stagnant under Obama is suddenly roaring now that he is president", Meyers explained. "It's not real, and it's not news, and it's definitely not real news".

But where is the evidence that "President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction"?

"Hey everybody, Lara Trump here", she begins breezily.

In the minute and a half-long video, McEnany summarizes positive stories for Mr. Trump, including the positive economic data, the awarding of the Medal of Honor to a Vietnam war veteran, his endorsement of a Senate immigration bill named the RAISE act, which would limit the number of legal immigrants allowed into the US primarily through the use of a points-based system. "I'm Lara Trump and that is the real news".

Mike McFaul, a USA ambassador to Russian Federation in the former Obama administration, on Sunday tweeted: "Wow".

Trump has more than 35 million Twitter followers, and his Facebook page has almost 24 million followers.

Watch the included clip for more from McEnany. "I bet you haven't heard about all the accomplishments the President had this week because there's so much fake news out there". The following Sunday, former CNN contributor Kayleigh McEnany gave the "News of the Week" update from Trump's Facebook page.

During the weekend, this is another video presented by Kayleigh McEnany - which has since become spokesperson for the republican party and who officiated up to date on the news channel CNN - which was put online.
