New York, July 17 (IANS) US President Donald Trump once again attacked the media on Sunday for what he calls its fake news, this time for disparaging his son, Donald Trump Jr., in their coverage of the Russia case.
“Hillary Clinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?” Trump posted on his Twitter account.
On Saturday, Trump had already tweeted his view that the latest information about his inner circle conspiring with Moscow to damage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s chances in the 2016 election was unfounded.
“With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!” the president tweeted on Sunday.
Nonetheless, it was his own son, Donald Trump Jr., who made public this week some emails in which he enthusiastically welcomed the idea of getting damaging information about Clinton from a Russian lawyer, Efe reported.
Aside from that, the president tweeted his thanks to one of his campaign advisers, Michael Caputo, for “so powerfully” telling the House of Representatives’ Intelligence Committee that “there was no Russian collusion in our winning campaign.”
