‘You are an asshole’: Trump lashes out at CNN for ‘fraudulent reporting’

President Donald Trump lashed out at a CNN report on Thursday accusing the network of “fraud” in a tweet.

Trump also accused CNN of “lying” and “not being fair” and accused the network “of lying to its viewers.”

CNN responded to the president’s tweets with a statement that read, “We were the first to report on the false reporting about President Trump’s meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

We are now confirming this report.

We were wrong and have since corrected the story.”

Trump then went on to criticize CNN for “failing” and called on the network to “put up or shut up.”

“Your ratings are tanking, and your advertisers are pulling out,” he said.

“Your advertisers are fleeing the country because of you.

Your advertisers are begging for your resignation.

Your media organizations are under attack, and you have nothing to fear from the Democrats and the liberal media establishment.”

“The media is in total disarray.

Your ratings are plummeting, you are losing money and your ad rates are going down.

“The mainstream media, including CNN, has gone insane. “

You are a disgrace and an embarrassment to your country,” he continued.

“The mainstream media, including CNN, has gone insane.

They are no longer reporting what the president said.

CNN is being investigated for possible collusion with the Russians.

The media is not reporting what you are saying.

It is the same dishonest media that helped Trump win the presidency.

You know it and I know it.

You have no respect for the truth.”

Trump is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the White House on Friday.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
