Trump accuses news media of trying to crash the economy

President Donald Trump on Thursday baselessly accused the press of trying to tank the American economy, shrugging off any blame for a prospective economic slowdown and possible recession heading into his reelection next year.

“The Fake News Media is doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election,” he said in a tweet. “The problem they have is that the economy is way too strong and we will soon be winning big on Trade, and everyone knows that, including China!”

The president offered no evidence to support his claim that the media, a frequent target of his ire, is working to weaken the U.S. economy.


  1. I don't doubt there a liberal moguls out there who would crash the American economy in a heartbeat if there was a plausible way to make Trump look responsible. They wouldn't care about the people affected, just that they hurt Trump.

  2. It seems to be a self fulfilling prophecy. We are told there is going to be a recession so everyone goes out and sells their stocks further pushing the chances of a recession.

  3. There have been such statements (trash the economy) to hurt / blame it on President Trump.
