U.S. President Donald Trump took aim at what he calls America's "fake news" at a press conference with the Polish Prime Minister in Warsaw on Thursday (July 6). On Sunday (July 2) Trump tweeted a mock video of himself tackling and repeatedly striking a man with a CNN logo super-imposed in place of his head, followed by a logo saying "Fraud News Network". The president has repeatedly made known his disdain for the media, calling it "the enemy of the American people". On Thursday he said CNN has been covering him in a very dishonest way for a long time and slammed NBC for being just as bad - despite the fact that Trump "made them a fortune with The Apprentice". He said he wants to see "honest, beautiful, free, fair press".
