Trump Attacks NY Times, Washington Post As ‘Fake News’ As US Death Toll Tops 10,000




President Trump lashed out against The New York Times and The Washington Post amid criticism from each of the publications regarding his administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, calling the two publications “Fake News sources of information” and “bad for America.”

“Advertising in the Failing New York Times is WAY down. Washington Post is not much better,” Trump tweeted to his more than 76 million followers.

“I can’t say whether this is because they are Fake News sources of information, to a level that few can understand, or the Virus is just plain beating them up,” he added.



“Fake News is bad for America!” Trump, who has told more than 16,000 false or misleading statements, ended his tweet.




Trump’s tweet came after the Times and the Post published two scathing opinion pieces on Monday.

“Has Anyone Found Trump’s Soul? Anyone?” reads the headline for an opinion piece by the Times’s Frank Bruni.

“He’s not rising to the challenge of the coronavirus pandemic. He’s shriveling into nothingness,” the subheadline adds.

“The worst president. Ever,” reads the headline from columnist Max Boot in The Washington Post.
