President Trump was giving a speech in Minnesota Wednesday when he called out the “fake news” media.
The crowd responded in kind, chanting “CNN sucks! CNN sucks!”
“We have created 3.4 million new jobs since Election Day. 3.4. And I have said before, if I would have said that to you during the campaign, those very dishonest people back there, the fake news, very dishonest. They would have said, he is exaggerating.”
While the president was still speaking, the crowd broke out into an easily recognizable chant.
“CNN sucks! CNN sucks! CNN sucks!”
“These are very dishonest people,” Trump added in response.
President Trump has long disliked the network, often calling it “fake news.”
