Angry Trump slams US media, calls it 'a stain' on America

Washington, Dec 11 (JEN): An angry Donald Trump slammed the US media, after a Washington Post journalist riled him with a picture from the President's Pensacola speech.

The picture in question was posted by Dave Weigel and showed an empty stadium with the caption "Packed to the rafters", visibly making fun of the President.

Trump, however, was quick to spot it and shot back with a series of tweets, asking Washington Post and the reporter to apologise for the deed.

Tweeting pictures from the same event, which showed a full stadium, he said, ".@DaveWeigel @WashingtonPost put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue, w/ thousands of people outside, on their way in. Real photos now shown as I spoke. Packed house, many people unable to get in. Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!"

He followed it up with another tweet, saying, ".@daveweigel of the Washington Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an almost empty arena last night for my speech in Pensacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on T.V.). FAKE NEWS, he should be fired."

Later on he said, "Very little discussion of all the purposely false and defamatory stories put out this week by the Fake News Media. They are out of control - correct reporting means nothing to them. Major lies written, then forced to be withdrawn after they are exposed...a stain on America!"

The tweet has since been deleted by Weigel.
