President Trump has launched a “real news” video series on his Facebook page as part of his effort to dismiss the news provided by the mainstream media.
The inaugural episode, published on Sunday, features Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara boasting about the president’s accomplishments in front of a background of Trump campaign logos.
“I bet you haven’t heard about all the accomplishments the president had this week because there’s so much fake news out there. Watch here for REAL news!” says Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump.
According to CNN, ‘presidents and lawmakers have used websites and social media platforms for years to promote their achievements, but the “real news” series goes further, seeking to discredit the mainstream media and advertising what purports to be a reliable alternative’.
