In a new statement, former President Trump ramped up attacks on the media.
“I am proud to inform you that the Lamestream Media has hit the lowest approval ratings ever recorded,” Trump said Sunday. “I think it would be fair to assume that I had something to do with that.”
Mainstream media outlets are “not only dishonest and corrupt,” the former president said, but “they are truly, according to a recent poll, the enemy of the people.”
What Trump was referring to was in a recent poll, Rasmussen asked likely voters: Do you agree or disagree with this statement: The media are “truly the enemy of the people”?
Rasmussen found 58% of likely voters agree the media are the enemy of the people.
There is a divide by party as 76% of Republicans agree media are the “enemy of the people” compared to only 37% of Democrats.
Trump also ripped CNN in his statement.
“In a similar category, CNN’s ratings are down a whopping, and record-setting, 79% and likewise, horrible numbers at MSDNC (Joe Scarborough and his lovely wife, Mika, are at record lows),” Trump said. “These developments are great news for the American People!”
