President Donald Trump expressed his frustration on Thursday with the media coverage of his presidency despite his successes.
Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt asked if he believes the media are the enemy of the people.
“No, not at all, but the fake news is. … It’s a big chunk. … Eighty percent? It’s a lot,” Trump said.
The president admitted he had thought his media coverage would improve after he won the 2016 presidential election; however, it worsened, he said.
“If I do something well, it’s not reported. … The New York Times cannot write a good story about me. They’re crazed. They’re like lunatics,” he said.
