Liberal Media Criticized by Trump for ‘Fake News’ and Stories of ‘Chaos’

During his press conference to announce his new Department of Labor secretary nominee, R. Alexander Acosta, President Donald Trump criticized the liberal media for “fake news” and not calling him when writing pieces critical of him and his presidency (in addition to running pieces depicting his presidency in “chaos”).

For example, according to CNN [1], Trump said the following:

“The media is trying to attack our administration because they know we are following through on pledges that we made, and they’re not happy about it, for whatever reason,” he said. “I turn on the news and I see stories of chaos. And yet it is the exact opposite. The administration is running like a fine-tuned machine.”
