In an interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday, President Donald Trump called out media outlets for their biased coverage of his presidency.
“CNN, MSNBC and Fox News are now being attacked by anti-Trump forces,” Trump said.
“They are all lying to the American people.”
Trump also blasted MSNBC and CNN for their coverage of the election.
“I was talking to one of my friends yesterday, he said, ‘MSNBC and CNN are the most dishonest people in the world,'” Trump said, according to a transcript.
“It’s a disgrace that these two networks are doing what they’re doing, because they are the greatest liars in the entire country.”
The President also slammed the media for its treatment of former President Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden.
“This was all lies, I’m talking about the lying about Obama,” Trump told the audience.
“And they said, oh he was a socialist.
I don’t know if you know that, but it was all bullshit, but you just said it.
He was a liberal, but he was one of the greatest presidents in history.
And all of a sudden, he was not a liberal.”
Trump’s comments come just weeks after the President took to Twitter to blast media outlets and their coverage, including Fox News.
“MSNBC, CNN and Fox are now beheading a liberal,” Trump wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.
“Fox News has been attacking President Trump since he won the election in 2016.”
Trump and his aides have also targeted CNN, accusing the network of being a “liberal propaganda organ” and a “failing” organization that should be “scared the hell out of itself.”
In a tweet earlier this month, Trump tweeted that CNN “has gone from one of Fox News’ most trusted sources to the most hated.”
