The ongoing offensive of US mass media, loyal to Democrats, against President Trump took a new turn when vice-president Mike Pence issued a statement, openly accusing one of the leading newspapers in publishing the ‘fake news’.
Pence denied that he is considering a run for the presidency, and interpreted the move NYT move as one more attempt to divide Trump’s administration.
“The American people know that I could not be more honored to be working side by side with a president who is making America great again,” the vice president said, referring to Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan.
“Whatever fake news may come our way,” he said, citing another favored presidential phrase, “my entire team will continue to focus all our efforts to advance the president’s agenda and see him re-elected in 2020.”
At this point in time it is unclear if NYT will offer its formal apology to vice-president, or it will continue the crusade against Trump’s administration in spite of the protests and accusations in a highly subjective and bias representation of political realities.
