Trump 'So Proud' He's Able to 'Convince People' on Fake News

(Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight")

President Donald Trump says he is "so proud" he has reduced public trust in mainstream media, and has been able to "convince people how fake it is."

In an interview aired Wednesday night on Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight," boasted of reducing public trust in the mainstream media as a result of his candidacy Wednesday, saying he was "so proud" he has been able to "convince people how fake it is."

Trump said he has 128 million followers on social media "across various platforms," and that gives him the ability to put out the "real word."

"And people agree," he said. "If you look at the level of approval of . . . general media, if you look at it from the day I started running to now, I'm so proud that I've been able to convince people how fake it is, because it has taken a nosedive."

"Fox has treated me fairly," Trump added. "And I don't mean good, but they've treated me fairly. I don't want to be treated good. I just want to be treated fairly."

A Politico/Morning Call poll posted earlier this month showed 46 percent of voters think the media fabricates stories about the Trump administration — including 76 percent of GOP voters, and 85 percent of those who strongly approve of Trump's job performance.

Trump said he though once he was elected, the media would start treating him well, "but they got much worse," he said — singling out CNN, MSNBC, NBC ABC, and CBS for putting out stories that are "so false" and citing sources "that in my opinion don't exist."

"It is so dishonest," he said. "It is so fake. And you know, I have come up with some pretty good names for people. I think one of the best names — you know, I've really started this whole fake news thing. Now they've turned it around, and now they're calling, you know, stories put out by Facebook fake, and they're fake. What could be more fake than CBS and NBC and ABC and CNN when you look at some of these stories?"
