Trump demands, gets apology from Washington Post reporter

Washington Post reporter apologizes for 'bad tweet' after Trump calls him out

Real photos now shown as I spoke.

Trump also demanded Weigel apologize for publishing a photo of the empty arena as it had been made hours before the president's arrival and many people had not come yet.

But that didn't satisfy the president, who called Weigel's original tweet "FAKE NEWS" and said, "he should be fired". He removed the tweet after being told by others that the photo was taken before the venue filled up and apologized in a later Twitter exchange with the president. "Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner", he tweeted.

But the president wasn't satisfied with Weigel's apology.

Trump's tweet references a photo Weigel tweeted showing a mostly empty arena, sarcastically repeating Trump's claim that the arena was "packed to the rafters". "FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", the president tweeted.

But an apology was apparently not enough, because Trump nearly immediately mischaracterized what Weigel had said and called for him to be fired from the Washington Post. On Saturday morning, he attacked CNN for making a what called a "vicious and purposeful mistake" when it was forced to correct a story about the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks. CNN acknowledged its mistake and issued a correction.

As for Trump, he tweeted earlier Saturday about his pleasure over the reception he received in Pensacola. "Watch to see if fires those responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?" he asked. Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public. I recommend @washingtonpost has it's WH press passes suspended for a month every time they print a blatantly fake news story.

CNN, in another tweet, he said, is the "least trusted name in news".

CNN told Politico that the reporters, Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb, would not receive discipline for their erroneous report.

Trump has also taken aim at ABC News' Brian Ross, who erroneously reported that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that he, as a candidate, had directed Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 election. But Flynn received the order during the transition period following the 2016 USA presidential election, not during the course of the campaign.
