Donald Trump hits out at CNN International

Washington: President Donald Trump has once again hit out at his broadcasting rival CNN in a tweet late Saturday afternoon. The 71-year-old wrote that CNN is doing a terrible job of representing the United States to the world - claiming that Fox News really has Americans' best interests at heart. '@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the US, CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly,' Trump furiously wrote on Twitter. 'The outside world does not see the truth from them!' It's not clear why the president chose to capitalize the words he did.

Clearly fed up by Trump's antics, CNN International quickly hit back at him in a tweet of its own. 'It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world. That's yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst,' the CNN PR team tweeted. This tweet is his latest attack on the cable network, which he branded earlier this year as 'fake news' because he doesn't agree with how it is covering his administration.
Trump has before shown his clear preference for the conservative-leaning Fox - often tweeting praise of its anchors, stories and 'honest' coverage of his administration. On Sunday's jab also comes amid tensions over a potential merger between AT&T and Time Warner - which the president starkly opposes. The Justice Department allegedly told AT&T that the $85billion merger would only be approved if it sells off CNN's parent company or DirecTV. AT&T denied that it offered to do so.
