Trump Issues Statement Thanking the WAPO For Their Correction, Calls For ‘Legacy Media Outlets’ to ‘Be Regarded as Political Entities’

Earlier today, we reported that the Washington Post has issued a lengthy correction after published audio found in the investigator’s trash folder revealed it misquoted former President Trump regarding his phone call with Frances Watson, the chief investigator of the Georgia secretary of state’s office.

Trump has now responded with a statement thanking the Post for their correction, while also asking for accountability when media outlets make errors like that.

“This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities – not journalistic entities,” Trump stated.

Trump also pointed out that the gaffes made by these outlets “always slant one way” against Trump and Republicans, while “stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do no harm.”

“A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press,” Trump added.

U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said that she believes “Trump deserves all the big headlines from this little tiny correction that the original story got.”

“But we all know that won’t happen,” Greene lamented.

With the issuance of a statement from the former president himself, the mainstream media will likely have no choice but to cover the situation now.

U.S. House Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) also applauded the correction and said, “President Trump was right. Fake news!”

Jordan wondered, “How many Pinocchio’s the @washingtonpost will give itself?”
