New Delhi [India], Feb. 18 (ANI): U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday asked the people not to 'believe' the main stream media while alleging them of running fake news. He also assured the people that the White House is functioning 'very well' as he claimed earlier. "Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media. The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it," he tweeted. On Thursday, Trump said that his administration is running like a "fine-tuned machine", despite not being able to get approval for his cabinets. "I turn on the TV, open the newspapers and I see stories of chaos, chaos. Yet it is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I can't get my cabinet approved," The Guardian quoted Trump as saying during a press conference. Trump's Tweet came after he attacked five main stream media houses and labeled them as the 'enemy of the American people'. "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!," he said in a tweet. Trump aslo lashed out at the media, citing conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, and quoted that his press conference was one of the most effective presser ever. "One of the most effective press conferences I've ever seen!" says Rush Limbaugh. Many agree. Yet FAKE MEDIA calls it differently! Dishonest," Trump said in a tweet. (ANI)
