President Donald Trump again complained about CNN’s influence overseas, suggesting the United States should start a government-funded overseas network.
“Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way,” Trump wrote. “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!”
The president has frequently complained about CNN’s influence overseas. In 2017, he said that they were a major source of “fake news” overseas.
.@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. The outside world does not see the truth from them!
