appeared on “Face the Nation” this Sunday. During the interview he told CBS NEWS host, John Dickerson, that CBS and Face the Nation are spreaders of fake news.
Trump was touting his accomplishments as president when Dickerson tried to get Trump to speak about his plans for North Korea. When Trump would not provide any details, Dickerson pressed the president to comment about the latest failed missile tests in Pyongang, but again, Trump refused to play. “You don’t want to discuss it because maybe we [the United States] have something to do with it,” Dickerson finally said.
“I just don’t want to discuss it,” replied Trump, explaining his silence on the matter is due to national security concerns. “We shouldn’t be announcing all our moves. It is a chess game. I just don’t want people to know what my thinking is.”
But the highlight of the interview was when the president called out Dickerson on his reporting of “fake news.” Trump said, “I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation.’ But, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.”
