Trump launches 'real news' show to combat fake news hosted by his daughter-in-law

President Donald Trump's continued war with the mainstream media took a new turn over the weekend when the president launched his very own "real news" show on his personal Facebook page.

After being teased for weeks, the first episode went up Sunday on the commander in chief's page, which is liked by over 22 million people. The show is hosted by the president's daughter-in-law Lara Trump, his son Eric Trump's wife.

The video has already been viewed over 1.7 million times, and appears to be exclusive to the president's personal Facebook page.

Lara Trump kicks off the video by saying, "I bet you haven't learned about all the accomplishments the president had this week because there is so much fake news out there."

"We wanted to give you a glimpse into his week."

The video goes on to discuss the president donating his salary to the U.S. Department of Education, the unemployment rate, Foxconn's promise to build its first major American factory in Wisconsin and Trump awarding the first responders in Alexandria, Virginia shooting the Medal of Valor.

The short two and a half minute video ends with host Lara Trump saying, "Thanks for joining us everybody, and that is the real news."

Trump's Facebook page has been teasing a new video news series that "brings nothing but the facts" for a few weeks now. In a video titled "Coming Soon From Trump Studio" Lara Trump urges supporters, "If you are tired of all the fake news out there remember you can tune in right here and we will bring you nothing but the facts."

Rumors have swirled for years around the possibility that Trump may jump into the cable news network game, but who would have guessed that his first step would be on Facebook while he's president of the United States?
