U.S. President Donald Trump called for the creation of a government news network, while slamming CNN, in a series of tweets on Monday.
In one tweet, Trump said the following: “While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way.”
The President then followed up, writing: “Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!”
We reached out to The White House for a comment but have not yet received a response.
