Trump: ‘Fox News is much more Important than CNN’

It is no secret that Donald Trump does not like CNN. Come to think of it, none of us really do. Unless you are a flaming liberal, in which case, you’re probably on the wrong website.

The president blasted CNN on Twitter, and called them “fake news.” This is nothing new. However, this time he added that the media source is less important than Fox news.

CNN’s communication team attempted to put the fire out with a condescending remark that said, “It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world. That’s yours.”

Trump’s tweet read, “@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly,” he added, “The outside world does not see the truth from them!”

CNN’s communications team tweeted back just minutes later, “It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world. That’s yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst.”

It sounds like their response is in agreeance with Trump though…..stating that Fox News does represent the U.S. and therefore makes them more important.

Fox Business reports: 

Trump’s remarks come at a significant time for the media outlet, whose parent company Time Warner is merging with AT&T in an $85 billion deal. The Department of Justice has sued to block the merger, and legal experts have speculated that Trump’s previous comments about CNN may be brought up during the litigation.

CNN is a frequent target of Trump’s ire, and he has labeled the network “fake news,” “dishonest,” “disgusting” and “ratings challenged” in the last several months alone.

Trump’s Saturday tweet also marked the second time in as many days that Trump lashed out at a major media outlet on Twitter. On Friday, he went after TIME Magazine, claiming he “took a pass” at being named its “Person of the Year.”

“Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ‘Man (Person) of the Year,’ like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot,” Trump added,  “I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”
