Donald Trump : Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election.


Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to hit back against media reports indicating that a majority of Americans looked unfavourably on his presidency, saying "any negative polls are fake news."

On Friday a CNN poll indicated that 53 per cent of Americans disapproved of the way Trump is handling his presidential transition, described by the network as "the highest disapproval for a new elected president since polls began tracking those results".

In a run of tweets criticising mainstream media outlets Mr Trump said: "Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting."

Another tweet, thought to be a response to suggestions that chief strategist Stephen Bannon is holding the reins in White House decision-making, Mr Trump wrote: "I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!"
Mr Trump also took another potshot a continuing bĂȘte noire the New York Times, writing: "The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!"
