I'll amend that, he said 'politician' not ' president' unfair ? Unfair? He might wanna find out what happened to Clinton, Nixon, Washington, Mussolini, Caesar, to name a few.


also, Fox News, I wonder if it his fave tv channel now?




I looked up what he actually said. And the way it has been reported proves his point:


“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,†Trump said on Wednesday during a speech to the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.â€



In other words ... treated by the media!

Harvard Study Reveals Huge Extent of Anti-Trump Media Bias



A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.


Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.


They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:




The academics based their study on seven US outlets and three European ones.


In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.


They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.

Every outlet was negative more often than positive.


Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.


Fox was ranked 52% negative and 48% positive.


The study also divided news items across topics. On immigration, healthcare, and Russia, more than 85% of reports were negative.


On the economy, the proportion was more balanced – 54% negative to 46% positive:




The study highlighted one exception: Trump got overwhelmingly positive coverage for launching a cruise missile attack on Syria.


Around 80% of all reports were positive about that.


The picture was very different for other recent administrations. The study found that President Obama’s first 100 days got a good write-up overall – with 59% of reports positive.


Bill Clinton and George W Bush got overall negative coverage, it found, but to a much lesser extent than Trump. Clinton’s first 100 days got 40% positivity, while Bush’s got 43%:




Trump has repeatedly claimed that his treatment by the media is unprecedented in its hostility.

This study suggests that, at least when it comes to recent history, he’s right.

President Trump caused the U.S. dollar to slump Wednesday. :ohmy: :angryfire: :mad: :cussing: :spank:



The dollar dropped 0.7%, a major move, after Trump told the Wall Street Journal that the dollar is "getting too strong."


"I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that's my fault because people have confidence in me," Trump said. "But that's hurting -- that will hurt ultimately."


The dollar hit its highest level in 13 years shortly after Trump won the election. It was widely viewed as a sign that investors believe America will grow faster than other parts of the world.


But now the dollar might be getting too mighty. The president is worried that US businesses, especially manufacturers, won't be able to compete. American goods are more expensive relative to European or Japanese products when the dollar's value is too high.


"It's very, very hard to compete when you have a strong dollar and other countries are devaluing their currency," Trump said.
