Trump Lashes Out at Media for Tax Reform Coverage

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump lashed out on Wednesday once again at the media, this time for its “demeaning” coverage of the tax reform, which is on the verge of being approved by the Republican majority in Congress.

“The Tax Cuts are so large and so meaningful, and yet the Fake News is working overtime to follow the lead of their friends, the defeated Dems, and only demean,” Trump said on Twitter.

“This is truly a case where the results will speak for themselves, starting very soon. Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!” he added.

Trump has been engaging in open verbal warfare with the majority of the US media, whom he accuses of casting aspersions on his administration and manipulating information to his detriment.

Regarding the tax reform, which will be the largest tax overhaul since 1986 and Trump’s first big legislative victory as president, the media have been reporting on the expected effects of cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans and US corporations.

In addition, according to figures prepared by the Congressional Budget Office, the tax law will increase the US deficit by $1.4 trillion.

However, Trump feels that the expected approval of the tax package is a great achievement after several disastrous legislative and other defeats since becoming president, these defeats – such as the GOP’s inability to overturn former President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform, known as Obamacare – coming despite the fact that Republicans hold majorities in both houses of Congress.
