Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump said on Friday that the New York Times report which details that he wanted to fire special counselor Robert Mueller last June was “fake news.”
“Fake news. Fake news. Typical New York Times. Fake stories,” Trump said today as he arrived at the World Economic Forum’s conference hall in Davos, Switzerland.
From there, Trump continued his attacks on the press but instead of getting applause from the crowd, he was booed.
“It wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be,” Trump said, drawing “boos” from the crowd.
Trump says he benefited from friendly media as a businessman but when he became president he realized “how fake a press can be.” (Boos and hisses in crowd)

Even the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab was booed on Friday after he said Trump’s leadership was victim to “biased interpretations.”
“I’m aware that your strong leadership is open to misconceptions and interpretation so it is so essential for us in the room to listen directly to you,” Schwab said.

Trump bragged about his economy in Davos, then news broke that the U.S. economic growth unexpectedly slowed in the fourth quarter, falling short of estimates.
BREAKING: Just as Trump was bragging about his economy in Davos, news broke that Q4 GDP in the United States fell to 2.6%, falling short of estimates. U.S. GDP grew by 2.3% in 2017. This also falls short of the 2.9% growth seen under Obama in 2015. #Davos2018

While Trump is at the globalist gathering in Davos, news broke that the amateur president tried to have special counsel Robert Mueller last June and even though his own White House hasn’t denied the report, the former reality show star is calling it ‘fake news.’ Even Sean Hannity couldn’t deny it after he was presented with the facts.
