U.S. voters trust the news media more than they trust President Donald Trump to tell the truth about important issues, a new Quinnipiac University national poll reveals.

Fifty-four percent trust the media compared to 36 percent who said they trust the president. Trump, on Tuesday during his campaign-style rally in Phoenix, slammed the "fake news" media and defended his comments on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia on Aug. 12.

The president even re-read his earlier statements on the incidents in Charlottesville to "show you how damned dishonest these people are."

"For the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people," Trump said. "They are bad people.

"I really think they don't like our country. I really believe that."

The Quinnipiac poll was conducted after the rally in Charlottesville, where white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters, resulting in three deaths and at least 34 injuries.

The poll of 1,514 voters nationwide was conducted Aug. 17-22 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts public opinion surveys nationwide, and in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research.
