President Donald Trump was viciously attacked by the liberal media all throughout his campaign, and now that he is president the media hasn’t given him a break.
Trump himself called the media the “opposition party” in an exclusive interview Friday morning with CBN News, and also weighed in on the media’s treatment of him during the election.
“Now, the media is on the opposition party’s side. And I actually said to myself, ‘I say they treat me so unfairly it’s hard to believe that I won.’ But the fortunate thing about me is I have a big voice. I have a voice that people understand,” Trump said.
Trump hit the nail on the head with that statement. It really is one of the most stunning aspects of the 2016 election that Trump managed to win even though the mainstream media hit him with everything they could.
Even some folks in the media can’t believe that their attempts to derail his candidacy backfired in such a spectacular way.
Trump also made it clear that he didn’t think everyone in the media is horrible.
“And I think that, and I’m not talking about all of them,” Trump told CBN’s David Brody. “I know people, like yourself, but I know people in the media that I have tremendous respect for. Respect them as much as anybody, so I’m not talking about everybody, but a big portion of the media, the dishonesty, total deceit and deception.”
Trump has shown that if the media treat him with respect, he will treat them with respect. However, if they print lies about him and twist his words to suit their own political purposes, he clearly doesn’t plan to let them get away with that.
The media tried for 18 months to destroy him, but failed — publicly and miserably. They still have a lot to learn when it comes to Trump.
