The mainstream media has been relentless in their attack on President Trump, but he has not backed down. In an interview with CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’ he stumped anchor John Dickerson in the most remarkable way—starting with discussing his first 100 days in the White House.
“Well, it’s a tough job,” President Trump said. “But I’ve had a lot of tough jobs. I’ve had things that were tougher, although I’ll let you know that better at the end of eight years. Perhaps eight years. Hopefully, eight years. But I’ll let you know later on. I think we’ve done very well with foreign policy. I think we’ve done very, very well with relationships with other leaders.”
“I think we’re doing great on trade deals,” he continued. “It’s set. And I think we’re doing well. I mean, our country is being out-traded at every single point. We’re losing tremendous amounts of money on trade. And I think actually, I’ve been very consistent. You know, it’s very funny when the fake media goes out, you know, which we call the mainstream media which sometimes, I must say, is you.”
“You mean me personally or…?” Dickerman asked.
“Well, your show,” Trump said. “I love your show. I call it Deface the Nation. But, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct. But when they talk about currency manipulation, as I did say I would call China, if they were, a currency manipulator, early in my tenure. And then I get there. Number one, they—as soon as I got elected, they stopped. They’re not—it’s not going down anymore, their currency.”
What do you think of Trump’s sly comment?
