President Donald Trump on Saturday launched an unprovoked attack on the press over the coverage of his plans to talk with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un.
As the media-critic in chief, Trump accused the news media of “being in disbelief” and becoming “fake” over the new development.
“In the first hours after hearing that North Korea’s leader wanted to meet with me to talk denuclearization and that missile launches will end, the press was startled & amazed,” Trump claimed. “They couldn’t believe it.”
“But by the following morning the news became FAKE,” he argued. “They said so what, who cares!”

Twitter users couldn’t believe Trump’s tweet and quickly fired back:
What the fuck are you talking about?

Precisely how is quoting you and your press secretary fake news? Which part is fake? Are you meeting? Will you discuss denuclearization? Have missile launches ended? You just said all of that, so where is the fake part. Your "logic" just isn't.
