“Trump: We have to stop using ‘fake news’ as an excuse to ignore everything!”

President Donald Trump has tweeted about the possibility of “fake news” being the root of a “global catastrophe” during his address to Congress on Wednesday.

He also hinted at a return to the use of the phrase in the future, in what was a surprise to many lawmakers who were expecting the president to use it in more specific terms.

“Fake news,” which is commonly used as an adjective to describe the misleading, often false, or inaccurate reporting about the president’s policies and the country he leads, has been in the news for a while.

In January, Trump used the term in a tweet about the media.

But the president has also been using it in recent months in reference to a wide range of issues, including his response to Hurricane Harvey, the Trump administration’s handling of a deadly chemical attack in Syria and a mass shooting in the United States.

On Wednesday, Trump made a veiled reference to fake news in his address, saying, “It’s a term we use in this country, which is a very dishonest and nasty word.”

“We’re going to stop it.

We’re going for real,” Trump said.

“We have to get it out of the dictionary.”

“It doesn’t have to be a word, it doesn’t even have to mean anything,” he added.

“But we’re going after it because it’s a dangerous word.”

Trump has also used the phrase to refer to the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.

“The United Nations is the world body for the protection of human rights,” Trump declared in his speech.

“It has become the world police, the world’s police.

They are there to protect our people, our democracy, our rights, but also to protect the world from a global catastrophe that’s coming.”

Trump did not elaborate on what he meant by “fake,” but he did use the phrase again when asked about the potential for the term to become a term for “fake media.”

“The term fake news, which I have always used, has become a very bad and nasty term in our country,” Trump continued.

“This is the term of abuse.”

“And we’re not going to use the term anymore, because it has become such a bad and abusive word.”

As of Thursday afternoon, the term was still in the dictionary, with some definitions, including that “fake” is the “incomplete, distorted, or misleading” and “false” is “inaccurate, misleading, or deceptive.”

In a tweet, White House spokesperson Raj Shah said that Trump was referring to “the false claim that the U.N. Human Rights Committee is biased against him.”

“In the United Kingdom, we have a very clear distinction between ‘fake’ and ‘news’ and the President’s comments in his House speech were a direct reference to that distinction,” Shah said.

The term “fake.”

Trump’s use of “false,” “fake, fake” is a term used by journalists to describe news outlets that have made up stories that do not match reality.

In 2017, former CNN host Brian Stelter used the word “fake News” to describe a media outlet that had a story about him being accused of sexual assault.

“If you are fake news,” Stelte said at the time, “it is hard to imagine what your story could be.”

“So if you are a story, if you want to call it fake news it is easy to say that, but it is much harder to call a story a lie,” Stenster added.

But Trump’s tweet on Wednesday about the “global crisis” is notable because it was a direct attack on a specific reporting outlet.

The president has been referring to a “fake story” by name as the “fake press” in several instances in the past.

In July, for example, Trump tweeted that CNN was “a total scam.”

In December, Trump referred to a story by the outlet The Washington Post as “fake!”

He also used it as an example of “the total media hoax that is going on.”

And earlier this year, he referenced a story on CNN by the president himself in his own speech at the Republican National Convention.

“CNN has become so politically correct, so political, and so biased that the fake news is going to get worse,” Trump proclaimed.
