President Trump launched his 2020 presidential re-election campaign on Tuesday night in Orlando. Despite it being a new campaign, President Trump and his followers still feel the same about CNN.
Just a few minutes into his rally, Trump called his announcement to run for president in 2015 a “defining moment in American history.” He then pointed to the media in attendance and said, “Ask them right there.”
From there the crowd of 20,000 began chanting “CNN sucks!” which drew a smile from President Trump.

After taking the moment in and walking in a small circle, President Trump pointed to the are the media and said, “By the way, that is a lot of fake news back there. That’s a lot. That’s a lot.”
About the 2016 election, President Trump said, “This was our chance to reclaim our government from a permanent political class that enrich themselves at your expense.”
John Berman of CNN was worked up about the way President Trump started off his re-election bid. So worked up that they cut away to him in studio to cry about the way the rally is going.
“All right. We’ve been watching the president kick off his reelection bid. He’s been on stage for about six minutes.
“Within two minutes he did talk about the economy, but within four minutes it was attacks on the media.”
This is the problem with CNN. They don’t just show us the news. Instead they tell us how we should feel about the news. This is exactly why President Trump feels the way he does about CNN.
