Trump to NY Times:
TRUMP: We’re going to win another four years for a lot of reasons, most importantly because our country is starting to do well again and we’re being respected again."
TRUMP: "But another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes."
Here's the American people's opinion on whom they trust more, cable, network news, and print media, or Trump. The American people trust cable, network news, and print media more than Trump, the Liar in Chief:
TRUMP: "Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times."
“That is incorrect. NYT’s business is thriving. Most ever paid subs: 3.3 million;and growing profit, income and revenues.”
TRUMP: "So they basically have to let me win. And eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, 'Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.' O.K"
No, Donnie Dotard, print and visual media don't "let" candidates for president "win." Print and visual media report what the POTUS says and does, and the people decide (without Russian influence, it is hoped).
What you call "fake news" is merely printing and reporting on the asinine things you say and do. Y'know like the interview you just gave the other day to the New York Times.
On the Mueller investigation on Russia influencing the 2016 election and Trump's possible obstruction of justice:
TRUMP: “I think it’s bad for the country. The only thing that bothers me about timing, I think it’s a very bad thing for the country. Because it makes the country look bad, it makes the country look very bad, and it puts the country in a very bad position. So the sooner it’s worked out, the better it is for the country.”
Translation from Dotardese to American English:
This is bad for me. Me. Me. Me. Screw the country. This is bad for me. Me. Me. Me. So the sooner it's worked out and my base forgets that I championed the felonious Michael Flynn and George Papadopolous and the indicted Paul Manaford and Richard Gates the better it is for me. Me. Me. Me.
It's there in all its arrogant, mendacious, wind-baggy, cognitive deteriorating glory by the lying Dotard-in-Chief.
