President Trump wrote Saturday that recent layoffs at two major news organizations were caused by a reaction to “Fake News and bad journalism,” as dozens of journalists found themselves without work.
“Ax falls quickly at BuzzFeed and Huffpost!” Headline, New York Post. Fake News and bad journalism have caused a big downturn. Sadly, many others will follow. The people want the Truth!

What a disgusting thing to say about dozens of American workers who just lost their jobs. https://t.co/hSnRD5NtpF

1,000 journalists lost their jobs last week. Ordinary people with rent to pay, families to support, student loan bills coming due. They are workers like any other who do not deserve this cruelty. https://t.co/WCtuZ6iRVx
