Donald Trump Threatens To Take Away Credentials Of Reporters He Doesn't Like

Acosta asked, "Does the president still believe that torture works, as he said during the campaign?"

"Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy and all things else, 91 percent of the network news about me is negative (Fake, )" he tweeted.

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump blasted the media for its overwhelmingly negative coverage of his administration, threatening to "take away credentials?".

A day after he declared America's withdrawal from the Iran deal of 2015, Trump renewed his battle with the media at home - a foe he has locked horn with since his pre-presidency days, Trump blasted it as "fake news" on Twitter yet again. At the time, Time Bureau Chief Michael Scherer asked Trump for assurance that he (Trump) would promise not to revoke press credentials of "unfair" reporters. However, his White House has never denied credentials to news outlets.

The tweet came after a Fox and Friends news segment quoted from a report from the conservative Media Research Center that said 90% of evening newscasts on ABC, CBS, and NBC were "negative" and primarily focused on scandals and controversies surrounding the White House.

Red Sox, Yankees to play regular-season games in London in 2019
Each Yankee and Red Sox player will receive an additional GBP 44,000 (USD 60,000) to play in London. London Stadium holds 55,000 people and is the home for West Ham United Football Club.

The historically cosy relationship between Washington reporters and politicians has always been criticized by media analysts and people within the industry but garnered notable attention in the wake of the White House Correspondents' Dinner (WHCD) late last month. Talev went on to state that it is the responsibility of a free press to report on everything that is happening, whether good or bad, from the important to the mundane. Trump ultimately tore up his media blacklist.

The media is in an uproar over the president's tweet.

What's more, barring reporters because of coverage could cross a legal line. "Presenting an honest portrait of elected leaders", read an article on Wednesday, "even - and especially - against their will is, of course, why the First Amendment to the Constitution cements the role of a free press".

"Take away credentials?" These authoritarian impulses of yours are anti-American.
