President Donald Trump on Friday blasted the media’s coverage of the first day of his presidency, saying they didn’t do a good job of “the whole story.”
“The media did not cover it very well,” Trump told reporters.
“The whole story is the Fake News media is working overtime to try and discredit me and all of you.
The whole story?
The Fake News Media is working hard at it.”
He added, “It’s really a disgrace.
And they’re working really, really hard to try to get me fired.”
He said he hoped the press would “do a better job” than the media did of covering his inauguration.
“I don’t know if they’ll be able to,” Trump said.
They’ll do a better thing than the press did.
And I think the press will do a much better job than they did, but you’ll see.”
Trump, who is the first president in history to be inaugurated without the approval of Congress, spoke of his plans for a major infrastructure package.
The Republican president said his administration will “continue to focus on creating jobs, rebuilding our nation, and rebuilding our infrastructure.”
He will also propose tax cuts for middle-class families and wealthy individuals, as well as expand the Social Security retirement program.
Trump said he has “the greatest support” from Republicans in Congress.
“My friends, we’re not going to let Democrats control this Congress, and I’ll tell you why,” Trump added.
“Because I’ve done so much for so many people.
He also said he will release a $4 trillion infrastructure plan in the coming weeks, although it has not yet been finalized. “
And I’ll be very happy to take the responsibility if I have to.”
He also said he will release a $4 trillion infrastructure plan in the coming weeks, although it has not yet been finalized.
“We’ll have the details,” Trump promised.
“So you can expect that in the very near future.
It’ll be a very, very great plan.”
He pledged to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and expand the U-2 spy plane program, a program that has been plagued by safety issues.
“When you look at what’s going on with this, you can’t just take our word for it,” Trump continued.
“But we’re going to have a very big wall along our southern border, we have to have to do something.
And we’re gonna have a great border wall, and we’re getting the border secured.
And then you have to deal with Mexico. “
That’s the big, big, bad, border wall that we’re building.
And then you have to deal with Mexico.
And you have a border, you have two countries that are fighting each other.”
Trump promised to use his power as commander in chief to “build the wall” and to “send a very strong message” to Mexico, as he promised to “take care of” the border.
He also vowed to renegotiate NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement.
“A very strong statement by me,” Trump declared.
“Mexico will pay for that wall, the wall will be a much bigger thing than what we’re talking about right now.”
The president said he would also seek to renegotiated the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump said “doesn’t really make sense” and that he will “get rid of.”
“We’re going into a period of renegotiating the nuclear deal and renegotiating it at the end of the month,” Trump insisted.
“It will be much bigger than what I’m talking about.”
