Trump launches ‘real news’ show on his Facebook page

WASHINGTON: Apparently raged at CNN which he often  refers as ‘Fake News’, US President Donald Trump has quietly launched his own news bulletin show to list his achievements as a president.

The President’s campaign Facebook page on Sunday night shared a video featuring former CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany delivering the “news of the week from Trump Tower.”

Trump has frequently shared positive clips from mainstream TV news broadcasts and the White House creates its own shareable videos to use on social media.

Last night’s Trump TV launch follows a ‘soft launch’ video last week, which saw Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump list the President’s “accomplishments” because “, according to Trump, there’s so much fake news out there.”

But this is the first time the President has created something which – despite the Trump branding in the background – looks like a regular news broadcast – even tapping a recognisable news host to present it.

McEnany left CNN on Saturday, the day before Trump TV launched. It’s unclear whether she is paid by the Trump campaign or the White House.

Ahead of the election, when it looked like Trump was going to lose, his team reportedly looked into launching a TV network – Trump TV – as a fallback business.

Former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul tweeted: “Wow. Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I’ve watched in other countries.”
