Saying that he would be front and centre in Russia to cheer on the red, white and blue regardless of what the media says, Donald Trump today hit out at “Fake News Media” for reporting that the United States failed to qualify for the World Cup.
In a series of tweets posted shortly after a 2-1 defeat to Trinidad and Tobago left the US eliminated from World Cup qualification for the first time since 1986, the billionaire president criticised the country’s “unpatriotic news outlets” for reporting their shameless reporting of the team.
“Our ‘Fake News Media’ won’t report it but I just want to congratulate our US men’s national team for qualifying for next year’s World Cup in Russia. Their achievement is incredible, even if CNN won’t say it,” said Trump today, adding that it was typical of the “so-called” fourth estate to undermine every good piece of news to come out of the country.
“Despite what the ‘Fake News’ merchants tell you, our football team is doing better than ever. Their results are at record highs. Make America Great Again!”
At press time, Trump had called a meeting of the United Nations Security Council to protest the widely reported fake news that the US would not be competing in Russia next summer.
