Trump Calls for Changes to Libel Laws After Mainstream Journalist Spreads Fake Trump Quote

On Monday, President Trump took to social media to denounce journalist Ian Bremmer’s recent fake quote, which he attributed to the president during his trip to Japan, and called for a change to existing libel laws.

“This is what’s going on in the age of Fake News,” said Trump. “People think they can say anything and get away with it.”

Trump went on to note, “Really, the libel laws should be changed to hold [the] Fake News Media accountable!”

Trump supporters agreed, and overwhelmingly condemned Bremmer and the media’s repeated use of false information to negatively reflect on the president and his administration.
