Washington DC [U.S.A.] Jan 8 (ANI) United States President Donald Trump has announced the rescheduling of his much anticipated "Fake News Awards" to January 17.

On Sunday, the President took to Twitter and said, "The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday. The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!"

Trump had on last Tuesday said that the awards would be announced on January 15.

He tweeted: "I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o'clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!"

The US president, in a public defence of his histrionics, on Saturday, went on a Twitter spree, branding himself as a "very stable genius."

This comes as Michael Wolff's book 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House' included depictions which paint Trump as uninformed, at times an erratic and a childish president.

Trump, however, termed it as "fake book", reported local media. (ANI)
