  • President Trump Announces Delay of Fake News Awards

It also says the Trump campaign did not expect to win the USA election and Trump himself was "befuddled" by the result, that he was angry A-list stars snubbed his inauguration, and that he found the White House "scary". "Stay tuned!" he had tweeted.

Trump has been at loggerheads with several USA mainstream media outlets, including the CNN, ABC News, The New York Times and the Washington Post among others.

He very often identifies CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post as "fake media".

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting".

He, however, excluded Fox News, his favourite news channel. They are all bad.

Trump frequently rails on the media and accuses reporters and networks of being "fake news".

Last November, President Trump first floated the idea of awarding a "fake news trophy" to media outlets to mark their "distorted" coverage of his presidency. He added that the victor of such an award should get a "fake news trophy".

In an email to his supporters on December 28, the Trump campaign sought nomination for the "King of Fake News" trophy. But knowing his passion for this subject above all others - say, providing power to Puerto Rico or keeping the government he's in charge of running - it's hard to believe he'll let us down.

Well, Trump has now announced a schedule change. "There's no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda".

"ABC News "MISTAKENLY" reported that candidate Trump directed Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials before the election", it said.

Bannon apologized on Sunday for not responding sooner, calling Donald Trump Jr.
