In leaked audio from a fundraising event at Trump international hotel in Washington DC, President Trump expressed his desire to sue CNN. He claimed that it would be ‘fun’.
“Boy, did CNN get killed over the last few days. It’s a shame what they’ve done to the name CNN — that I can tell you,” said President Trump referring to the fake news story about Russia that had to be retracted. Three CNN reporters resigned over the incident. CNN was also exposed in the Project Veritas videos.
“But as far as I’m concerned, I love it. If anybody’s a lawyer in the house and thinks I have a good lawsuit — I feel like we do. Wouldn’t that be fun?” said President Trump.
He went on to reference the Project Veritas video on Van Jones where a reporter secretly recorded him saying that the Russia investigation was a “nothing burger”. A CNN producer also claimed that CNN was just pushing the Russia collusion narrative for ratings.
“Van Jones — you see this man? These are really dishonest people. Should I sue them? I mean, they’re phonies. Jeff Zucker, I hear he’s going to resign at some point pretty soon,” said President Trump. Do you think he should sue them? He definitely has a case. Check out the audio below.
