Reports emerged on Wednesday that President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, signed a $10 million contract with a Russian businessman who is a close associate of Vladimir Putin.
Allegedly, Manafort signed on with Oleg Deripaska to help advance Putin’s interests around the world. This report is in stark contrast to what was said by Manafort about having ties to Russia.
President Trump took to Twitter this morning to blast mainstream media outlets NBC and ABC for their coverage of the investigation into his administration’s potential links to Russia.
He wrote: “Just watched the totally biased and fake news reports of the so-called Russia story on NBC and ABC. Such dishonesty!”
Trump was not specific in terms of what part of the reports he found to be false.
Just watched the totally biased and fake news reports of the so-called Russia story on NBC and ABC. Such dishonesty!
