Donald Trump stepped up his attack on the media Sunday with a series of tweets accusing the press of protecting Hillary Clinton, writing false stories about him, and even bias coverage of this rallies.
“I am not only fighting Crooked Hillary, I am fighting the dishonest and corrupt media and her government protection process,” Trump wrote. “People get it!”
He followed up shortly after with, “It is not ‘freedom of the press’ when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!”
Trump repeatedly called the New York Times “failing” during the series of tweets, and wasn’t shy about his opinion that the media is covering for Clinton. He sent eight anti-media tweets in a 24-hour period, typically slipping in a Clinton jab in addition to the assault on press.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton is being protected by the media. She is not a talented person or politician,” Trump wrote. “The dishonest media refuses to expose!”
Trump even thinks his campaign rallies are covered unfairly, writing, “They never discuss the real message and never show crowd size or enthusiasm.”
Trump isn’t planning on changing his style anytime soon, though. He added the media wants him to change, but insisted he “always” stays on message despite the press painting a different pictures.
“I have always been the same person-remain true to self,” Trump wrote. “The media wants me to change but it would be very dishonest to supporters to do so!”
