The Latest: Trump attacks news media on night of dinner
The Latest on President Donald Trump’s 100th day in office Saturday (all times EDT):
President Donald Trump is issuing a scathing attack on the national news media at a Pennsylvania rally he organized for the same evening the White House Correspondents’ Association hosts its annual dinner.
Weeks ago Trump decided to skip the dinner and even wished the group well. But speaking to supporters Saturday night in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the president derided the news media and accused them of “fake news.”
Trump says if the media’s job is to be honest and tell the truth, then they deserve “a big, fat failing grade.” He says that in contrast, his administration has been delivering for the American people every day.
