President Trump responded to the media's attack on the situation at America's detention centers. He challenged the media to actually go and visit these centers that they have attacked so frequently.

He wants the media to see the conditions first hand.

According to The Daily Wire:

On Sunday, in New Jersey before he made his way back to the White House, President Trump, fed up with the way the detention centers for illegal immigrants have been portrayed in the media, told reporters that he wants the press to see the detention centers, saying, “I want the press to go in and see them.”

Trump stated, “What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers because — to the press. I want the press to go in and see them. And I just spoke to Mark Morgan, and I just spoke with, as you know, Kevin, so we’re going to send people in. We’re going to have some of the press go in because they are crowded, and we’re the ones complaining who were complaining about how they’re crowded. They’re crowding because people come up but now thanks to Mexico, it’s slowing down greatly, and I think you’ll start seeing some very good numbers. But it is crowded. But we want to have the press go in and see because The New York Times, it really is fake news.”

On Sunday, the president noted the media’s biased slant on the detention centers, tweeting:

The Fake News Media, in particular the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers. First of all, people should not be entering our Country illegally, only for us to then have to care for them. We said there was a Crisis - the Fake News & the Dems said it was “manufactured.” Now all agree we were right, but they always knew that. They are crowded (which we brought up, not them) because the Dems won’t change the Loopholes and Asylum. Big Media Con Job!

The New York Times report focused on a detention center in Clint, Texas and President Trump responded by calling the report a "fabrication."

It remains unclear if any members of the media will take President Trump up on his offer.
