Trump Sends Very CLEAR Message To CNN – WATCH YOUR BACK!

Trump Sends Very CLEAR Message To CNN – WATCH YOUR BACK!

President Trump has had it with CNN reporting false stories and harping on the unsubstantiated Russia conspiracy, despite the network having helped him rise to celebrity status in the past.

He has made it very clear that he plans to “get even” with CNN President Jeff Zucker, who Trump claims is a “disloyal person.”

From Western Journalism:

A new report says President Donald Trump sent an uncompromising message last fall to a man who once helped him achieve celebrity status but had now, in Trump’s eyes, become the enemy.

Shortly after CNN panelists used an October presidential debate to focus upon a recently leaked 2005 tape of the then-Republican nominee using derogatory language about women, Trump reminded CNN President Jeff Zucker he would find a way to even the score.

In happier days, Zucker, as head of NBC Entertainment, had helped Trump achieve national prominence with The Apprentice and later Celebrity Apprentice.

An email, reportedly routed through Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks, presaged the assaults upon CNN that Trump would deliver from the Oval Office.

“Jeff, Too bad you (CNN) couldn’t be honest with how well I did in the debate. The dumbest thing I ever did was get you the job at CNN — you are the most disloyal person. Just remember, I always seem to find a way to get even. Best wishes, Donald J. Trump,” ran the text of the email.

The email’s existence was unveiled by the New York Times in an extensive look at how the careers of Trump and Zucker have intertwined, both from Trump’s days in reality TV and Zucker’s use of saturation coverage of Trump to boost CNN’s ratings and standing.

It must have hurt the President deeply to have helped someone get a very important job in the media only to have that same source used against you in one of the dirtiest political fights in recent memory. I just hope that he doesn’t use the officer to punish the station in a direct violation of the First Amendment.
