Trump: ‘We Don’t Have Freedom of the Press in This Country'
President blasts media for covering for Joe Biden
President Donald Trump took aim at the media for not covering stories that cast former Vice President Joe Biden in a negative light.
During an interview that aired on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” the president said the establishment media is suppressing freedom of the press.
In a phone-in interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, Trump termed it “suppression by the press."
“[T]he media doesn’t want to talk about it," Trump began.
"They know how fraudulent this is. It’s no different than Hunter," he added.
"They don’t want to talk about Hunter, so they totally closed it off, big tech and the media, other than The New York Post."
"As you remember, which took a lot of heat. It was terminated," Trump continued.
"It was terminated from, I guess, Twitter, maybe Facebook."
"But it’s a situation, the likes of which — we don’t have freedom of the press in this country.
"We have suppression by the press.
"They suppress. You can’t have a scandal if nobody reports about it," Trump added.
"This is the greatest fraud in the history of our country, from an electoral standpoint.
"And I guess you could build it up bigger than an electoral stand — what’s bigger from an electoral standpoint?
"What is bigger than this? This is the essence of our country.
"This is the whole ball game. And they cheated.”
One such suppression was the explosive New York Post story, which exposed emails sent from adviser to Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Vadym Pozharskyi, to Hunter Biden, thanking him for helping arrange a meeting with his then-VP father, which was suppressed by both big tech and the media.
Earlier this year, Attorney General William Barr said the establishment media is highly corrosive to the US, and most in the industry are liars.
“They’re basically a collection of liars," Barr began.
"Most of the mainstream media,” Barr continued.
“They’re a collection of liars, and they know exactly what they’re doing.
"A perfect example of that was the riots."
