At an election campaign-style rally in Florida, US President Donald Trump once more lambastes the so-called dishonest media.


Donald Trump has once more lambasted the so-called dishonest media.

Unusually for a sitting US president, he held an election campaign-style rally in Florida. During his address, he said he wanted to speak to the people “without the filter of fake news.”

Trump threatened to ‘continue to expose them’, adding:

“When the media lies to people I will never ever let them get away with it, I will do whatever I can that they don’t get away with it. They have their own agenda and their agenda is not your agenda.”

He also vowed, once more, to ‘downsize the bloated bureaucracy’ and ‘drain the swamp’ in Washington.

Trump in 2014 said this even though he is costing tax payers $10+ million for 3 weekends in Florida & $1 mil per day for security in NYC.

Trump repeated several of his election pledges, including the strengthening of US borders and the introduction of a new healthcare plan, among others.

He also sought to assuage fears of turmoil in the White House by insisting it ‘is running so smoothly’.

Protesters at rallies around the country appeared to disagree. In New York, demonstrators wearing black held a fake funeral for the American presidency.
