President Donald Trump has famously accused a variety of of media outlets, including the New York Time, Washington Post, and CNN, of publishing, biased, misleading, or even false stories that are critical of him and his administration. He has punished these outlets for their alleged actions by calling them the “enemy of the people” and by freezing them out of White House press conferences in an attempt to lower their readerships and viewerships. He has even gone so far as to call these sources and others as “Fake news”. Ironically, there is no evidence to suggest that these outlets are publishing misleading or outrightly false information, but there has yet to be verification on the President’s claim that former POTUS Obama wiretapped him during the Presidential campaign. By making this claim, even if there is no evidence to support it, President Trump is misleading millions of Americans who are not well educated enough to realize that they are being duped. In this way, Trump is creating the Fake News that he claims to despise. By doing so, he is harming the United States and the American people for the long-term future.
