Trump floats starting state-run worldwide network to rival CNN
President Trump on Monday slammed CNN and suggested that the U.S. establish a state-run, worldwide network.
He tweeted: “While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way.”
“Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!” Trump continued.
