Trump slams ‘fake news’ for treating son unfairly and ‘distorting democracy’

President Trump insisted again on Sunday that there was “no Russian collusion in our winning campaign” in the wake of his son’s admission to seeking Kremlin-dug political dirt.
The embattled president returned to his stock attack on “fake news” in defending Donald Trump Jr., who disclosed last week that he took a meeting with a Moscow surrogate peddling damaging information on Hillary Clinton during the campaign.
“HillaryClinton (sic) can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media,” the president tweeted at 6:35 a.m.
Despite his son’s stunning revelations and crystal clear email chain, Trump called the whole matter a product of “fraudulent reporting.”
“With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country,” the angry president tweeted.
Trump’s sunrise Twitter storm also included praise for his surrogate Michael Caputo and LPGA fans who attended the U.S. Women’s Open at Trump National in Bedminster, NJ.
Caputo, a former top campaign aide to Trump with long ties to Russia, told the House intelligence committee that Trump never personally spoke about Kremlin help during the campaign.
