Trump accuses CNN of ‘vicious and purposeful mistake’ over Wikileaks emails


President Donald Trump has attacked CNN in a furious series of tweets after it corrected a story about him and his son, Donald Jr.


The US President accused the network of a “vicious and purposeful mistake” in its reporting.

Mr Trump has previously attacked the “FAKE NEWS media”, in which he included The New York Times, CNN, NBC and others, as “the enemy of the American People”.

He has used the “fake news” slogan to rally his supporters and deflect criticism repeatedly on the campaign trail as well as during his presidency.

He said on Saturday: “CNN’S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS. Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public. There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN. Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!”

CNN reported a story yesterday that Mr Trump and his son were sent a “decryption key” which would have allowed them to access hacked documents from Wikileaks before they were available to the public.
