President Donald Trump is confident he is going to win the 2020 elections as a result of the media shifting into his favor as well as that The New York Times knows it will “tank” without him in the White House.
In the interview that took place at his Florida golf course, Trump commented that ratings for “all forms of media” will “tank” unless he is in the White House, which will provoke positive media coverage from organizations that have been critical of his policies in the past, The Hill reports.
“Another reason that we’re going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because, without me, their ratings are going down the tubes,” Trump said in the interview.
“Without me, The New York Times will indeed be, not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times,” he then added.
“They basically have to let me win, and eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, ‘Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.’ O.K.,” he continued.
Trump has regularly attacked the national news media since taking office and has also asked his fans to help him in awarding an, as he says, “fake news trophy” for 2017.
“Americans are sick and tired of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension. There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda,” a fundraising email from Trump’s team to supporters read. “That’s why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year,” the email continues.
Last month, President Trump suggested there was a contest among the media for the “Fake News Trophy”, with the only exception he gave being Fox News.
“The FAKE NEWS has utterly abandoned their duty to fairly report the news to the American people. Some journalists and liberal pundits think that Americans are too stupid to see through their amateur efforts to manipulate public opinion, but THEY’RE WRONG,” was also written in the email.
