Trump steps up attacks on ‘dishonest’ US media

0

NEW YORK CITY: Donald Trump stepped up his assault on the US media on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), branding the political press “dishonest,” calling one journalist “a sleaze” and promising more such attacks if elected US president. The former reality TV star, prolific on Twitter with two million more followers than Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, has dominated coverage of the 2016 presidential cycle like no other by calling personally into television shows and frequently holding court at press conferences broadcast live nationwide. The New York tycoon, who was dismissed as a joke when he launched his campaign, annihilated 16 rivals in the race to sew up the Republican nomination and is trailing Clinton by just a few percentage points in recent polls.
