Präsident Donald Trump spoke today at Davos– the yearly event of the ultrawealthy– and the crowd provided a rather moderate rebuke of his position on the matter of “phony news.”
“ It wasn ’ t till I ended up being a political leader that I understood how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how phony journalism can be as the cams begin going off in the back, ” Trump stated throughout his remarks.
As he discussed the video cameras going off– a referral Trump has actually made about networks cutting him off mid-speech, something that hasn’t occurred– some in the crowd booed the president.
According to one press reporter present, a minimum of a few of the booing originated from a foreign press reporter.
