CNN's Clarissa Ward: Trump's Attack on CNN International 'Emboldens' Hostile Foreign Governments

US President Donald Trump has once again expressed his dissatisfaction with CNN, comparing it unfavorably to Fox News.

From time to time, throughout Trump's presidency, there have been these flashpoints - periods where he tweets insults at the national news media, advising his supporters not to believe what they read and hear.

On Saturday, Trump took aim at a new target: CNN's worldwide programming.

In a separate tweet on Monday, he mocked the ratings for the MSNBC show "Morning Joe", and in tweets on Sunday, he complained about CNN International. "The outside world does not see the truth from them!" said Trump from his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida.

Donald Trump has tweeted that he wants to see a "fake news trophy" for the most dishonest press. Trump wrote on his account which he uses daily to communicate with his large support base.

"For almost four decades CNN has been constant here in the United States and around the world". "That's yours. Our job is to report the news", adding "#FactsFirst".

CNN's communications team fired back minutes later, tweeting, "It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world".

After Blitzer spoke, CNN commentator and former State Department spokesman, retired Rear Admiral John Kirby said Trump's tweets are putting in danger the lives of American journalists overseas. Earlier this month, he tweeted about "truth" and "lies" after Trump attacked his integrity, called him a "political hack", and cast doubt on the U.S. intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

"The Tax Cut Bill is tagging along exceptionally well, incredible help", Trump composed.
