Throughout his political career, Donald Trump has been at the center of a great deal of bad press, thanks in no small part to the leftish lean of the mainstream media.
CNN and others have been covering Trump with all the grace and dignity of a dog dragging its derriere across the carpet, hoping to taint The Don’s reputation to the point that he’ll be a hard sell to GOP voters in the 2024 primary.
Now, as Trump may very well be contemplating his next political move, he’s also taking aim at CNN and others, who spent months defaming his beliefs on the 2020 election results.
Former President Donald Trump notified CNN of his intention to file a lawsuit against the network for “repeated defamatory statements” in a statement Wednesday.
Ifrah Law, a Washington-based law firm, filed a Notice of Intent ordering the network, under Florida Statute § 770.02, to “publish a full and fair correction, apology, or retraction” in published pieces or broadcasts that allegedly made “false statements” about the former president. The notice warned that failure to issue an apology will result in a lawsuit.
The former President was not messing around.
“Failure to publish such a correction, apology, or retraction will result in the filing of a lawsuit and damages being sought against you, CNN,” the document warned.
Trump warned he will be suing other media outlets that have “defamed and defrauded the public” about the 2020 presidential election results.
“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump said. “I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”
Trump supporters will undoubtedly be cheering the move, seeing as they’ve long felt as though CNN and other cable news networks were out to get the former President.
