Donald Trump Rips ABC News, Politico Over Reports on ‘Anchor Babies,’ Phoenix Campaign Rally

“.@politico covers me more inaccurately than any other media source, and that is saying something. They go out of their way to distort truth!” GOP frontrunner tweets

ABC News and Politico found themselves the targets of Trump’s latest Twitter tirades after their critical coverage of his campaign sparked the candidate’s ire.

After ABC’s “World News Tonight” ran a package Thursday night in which Tom Llamas criticized Republican candidates Trump and Jeb Bush for their use of the term “anchor babies,” the real estate mogul took to Twitter to accuse ABC of “fraudulent” reporting.

“.@TomLlamasABC cannot report the news truthfully. Why not apologize for your fraudulent story on World News Tonight,” he wrote, arguing that the report mischaracterized his stance on the deportation of undocumented immigrants when it said he had been “vowing to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants.”

“My statement ‘we’re going to get them out so fast, so quick’ applied to hard core criminals & gang members. LIE,” he continued.

But whatever Trump’s feelings toward ABC News, by Saturday afternoon Politico was the worse offender.

“.@politico covers me more inaccurately than any other media source, and that is saying something. They go out of their way to distort truth!” he tweeted.

In a piece comparing Trump’s presidential run to that of four-time loser George Wallace, Politico’s Ben Schrekinger called into the question the number of supporters who attended the rally, citing media reports that estimated the number to be around 15-20,000, far below the expected turnout of 40,000.

“It has just been confirmed by the City of Mobile, Alabama, that there were 30,000 people at last nights event, making it #1for pol season,” he wrote on Twitter, also thanking The Washington Post for their “accurate and very discriptive [sic] story.”
