The US president, Donald Trump, today called “lunatic fools” journalists critical of his presidency, mired in a partial closure of the Administration since last December 22, and stated that the media in his country use “sources nonexistent. “
“Many (journalists) have become crazy lunatics who have renounced the TRUTH!” Trump exclaimed in his Twitter account, after reviewing the “successes” of his Government.
“With all the success that our country is having, including the newly published employment numbers, which are out of series, the false and totally dishonest media with respect to me and my presidency (they say) that (my presidency) has never Been so bad, “said the president.
Likewise, Trump assured that the American media will “deceive and degrade” his figure “knowingly” to make the “tremendous success” of his Administration “look as bad as possible.”
“They use non-existent sources and write stories that are total fiction, our country is doing very well, however, this is a sad day in the United States!” Denounced the president.
It is common for Trump to charge against the media and journalists and accuse them of lying, although until now he had not used the term “crazy lunatics” to refer to communication professionals critical of his presidency.
The Administration is partially closed since last December 22 because the negotiation between Republicans and Democrats in Congress was blocked by Trump’s demand that the budget project include a game of more than 5.600 million dollars to finance the wall frontier.
Trump’s unwavering attitude towards the construction of the wall, which was one of his star electoral promises, and the continued refusal on the part of the Democrats to agree on this issue, has led the Government to be partially closed for 17 days.
This situation has caused some media to catalog the current situation as the worst in the US government since Trump’s arrival at the White House, an opinion that the president has not liked.
Administrative paralysis affects agencies of ten Executive departments, including Transportation and Justice; as well as dozens of national parks, which are usually a major tourist attraction.
In addition, it harms some 800,000 of the 2.1 million federal workers, who will not charge while the government remains closed and are at the expense of approving a new budget. (EFEUSA) .-
