‘You’re Just A Faker’: Trump Lashes Out At Reporter Who Asked About His ‘Chosen One’ Declaration




President Trump lashed out at media coverage of his remarks earlier this week in which he declared himself “the chosen one” to take on decades of unfair Chinese trade practices.

In a wide-ranging press gaggle before departing for the G7 in France, Trump late Friday said his “chosen one” remark was just “sarcasm.”

Asked about the remark on the White House’s south lawn, Trump responded with visible impatience: “Let me tell you, you know exactly what I meant.”



“It was sarcasm,” he continued. “It was joking. We were all smiling.”

“And the question like that is just fake news,” Trump told the reporter. “You’re just a faker.”

Trump took to Twitter hours later to slam the media as “fake news” over their coverage of his “chosen one” remark.

Trump called himself the “chosen one” on Wednesday as he discussed his trade war with China while.




“Somebody said it is Trump’s trade war. This isn’t my trade war,” Trump told reporters Wednesday. “This is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents.”
