Saturday night the US Presidnet Donald Trump posted a series of tweets about his recent interview with George Stephanoloulos of ABC where he said he would accept information on his political rivals from foreign parties.
President Trump accused media of dissecting and distorting of what had really been said at the interview, yet suggested that he would do more interviews in the future.
“I enjoyed my interview with @GStephanopoulos on @ABC. So funny to watch the Fake News Media try to dissect & distort every word in as negative a way as possible,” posted the President. “It will be aired on Sunday night at 8:00 P.M., and is called, “President Trump: 30 Hours” (which is somewhat misleading in that I personally spent only a small fraction of that time doing interviews. I do have a few other things to do, you know!).”
“Think I will do many more Network Interviews, as I did in 2016, in order to get the word out that no President has done what I have in the first 2 1/2 years of his Presidency, including the fact that we have one of the best Economies in the history of our Country. It is called Earned Media. In any event, enjoy the show!” Trump added.
In the interview President said that “there’s nothing wrong with listening” to information about political opponents if it is offered by foreign governments. His comments were widely criticized both by Democrats and Republicans.
