Trump renews attacks on ‘fake, fake disgusting news’

By Associated Press

President Donald Trump is renewing his campaign against the media, blasting journalists at a Pennsylvania rally as “fake, fake disgusting news” and casting them as his true political opponent.

Trump barnstormed Thursday night in a state that he swiped from the Democrats in 2016 and that is home to a Senate seat he is trying to place in the Republicans’ column this fall.

But the race between GOP U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta and two-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Bob Casey took a back seat to Trump’s invectives against the media, which came amid a backdrop of antagonism to journalists from the White House and hostility from the thousands packed into a loud, overheated Wilkes-Barre arena.
