The topics the president tweeted were misrepresented by news media ranged from discussions with world leaders in Biarritz to referring to himself as the “the chosen one" to deal with Chinese trade.
"When I looked up to the sky and jokingly said “I am the chosen one,” at a press conference two days ago, referring to taking on Trade with China, little did I realize that the media would claim that I had a 'Messiah complex.' They knew I was kidding, being sarcastic, and just having fun," he tweeted Saturday, the day he got to France for the summit.
"I was smiling as I looked up and around. The MANY reporters with me were smiling also. They knew the TRUTH...And yet when I saw the reporting, CNN, MSNBC and other Fake News outlets covered it as serious news & me thinking of myself as the Messiah. No more trust!"
Hours later, Trump tweeted that the "Media is destroying the Free Press," seemingly quoting Fox New radio personality Mark LevinMark Reed LevinMiddle East scholars blame Trump for an Iran policy 40 years in the making Progressive group endorses three House freshmen Mark Levin hits ex-Fox News reporter over his criticism: 'He was very comfortable hobnobbing with conservatives' MORE.
