President Donald Trump on Friday said The New York Times and Washington Post should have their Pulitzer prizes revoked now that the Mueller report showed no collusion between himself or anyone on his campaign and the Russian government.
Trump took his argument to Twitter Friday night:
"So funny that The New York Times & The Washington Post got a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage (100% NEGATIVE and FAKE!) of Collusion with Russia - And there was No Collusion! So, they were either duped or corrupt? In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!"
The president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was quick to agree, tweeting:
"He’s right... unless they give Pulitzer’s for fiction. #fakenews"
The New York Times' communications team on Friday stood by the paper's stories, tweeting:
"We're proud of our Pulitzer-prize winning reporting on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. Every @nytimes article cited has proven accurate."
