Trump criticizes CNN for 'representing USA poorly to the world'

On Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to fire more shots at CNN - but this time on something he usually doesn't go after: CNN International.

"They (CNN International) represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly".

The tweet garnered thousands of reactions. That's yours. Our job is to report the news.

President Trump is continuing his sniping at one of his favorite targets - CNN.

CNN more adheres to the policy of the democratic party and often criticized trump during the race.

Although AT&T said earlier this year that the deal was expected to close by the end of 2017, last month, the company's chief financial officer told investors government approval was not moving as smoothly as expected and the deal would be delayed until next year.

The takeaway? Twitter thinks Trump's continuous threats toward CNN aren't just a nuisance - they're a blow to principles of free speech and press freedom. CNN's Christiane Amanpour would know - she tweeted a video of herself running away from the sound of bullets while reporting overseas.

Trump's tweet-thanks to Maga Pill came three days into the president's Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Florida, a getaway stuffed with golf and media rumination. Eisen also noted that the timing of Trump's anti-media tweet was suspect; it went out the same day CNN and other media outlets reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin had announced that Russia would begin recognizing media organizations from other countries as "foreign agents".
