The Real Reason Donald Trump Wants To Sue CNN
Lifestyle - News
It’s no secret Donald Trump dislikes most media portrayals of him and his political agendas, and the former president has even referred to the press as “the enemy of the people.” One of Trump's most popular targets is CNN, and he's often dismissed the news network as “fake news” — but now, Trump is taking his feud to a whole new level.
Trump plans to take CNN to court over the network’s coverage of his 2020 campaign. He claims that the network made “defamatory statements” about his constant claims of election fraud that year, and announced that he will also be “commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public.”
The former president’s legal team send a 282-page letter to the news network, reading in part, “CNN has published numerous articles characterizing [Trump] as a ‘liar’ and the purveyor of the ‘Big Lie.’” This is not the first time Trump has threatened legal action against the media, since he previously threatened to sue The New York Times.
