Trump Calls out CNN and New York Times for False Reporting on U.S. Mexico Deal
 
President Trump used a series of tweets to call out the New York Times and CNN for false reporting on the deal reached between the United States and Mexico to slow the flow of illegal immigration at the southern border.

According to The Daily Wire:
 

President Donald Trump blasted The New York Times and CNN on Sunday as being "the enemy of the people" in response to reporting that he said was false regarding the deal the administration just secured with Mexico.

In a series of tweets, Trump warned that if Mexico does not cooperate with the United States and does not honor the agreement it reached with the administration last week that he will reimpose his proposed tariffs on Mexico.

"The president and other key administration officials also sharply disputed a New York Times report claiming the Friday deal 'largely' had been negotiated months ago, and hinted that not all major details of the new arrangement have yet been made public," Fox News' Gregg Re reported. "Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, speaking on 'Fox News Sunday,' insisted 'all of it is new,' including the agreement to dispatch around 6,000 National Guard troops — a move Mexico has described as an 'acceleration.'"

...

The deal struck between the U.S. and Mexico came just a few days before the U.S. was set to impose a 5% tariff on Mexican goods coming into the U.S. until Mexico stopped the flow of illegal immigration that has been flooding the southern border.

The win by President Trump is another example of his unconventional tactics being abrasive to the media but working in real life.
