Fresh from his travels, Trump rails on Twitter about ‘fake news’

WASHINGTON — US President Donald Trump, who was uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter during his nine-day trip abroad, resumes his favorite pastime Sunday with a tweet storm in which he thunders against “fake news.”

“It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media,” he writes the morning after his return home.

“Whenever you see the words ‘sources say’ in the fake news media, and they don’t mention names it is very possible that those sources don’t exsist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!,” he writes, spelling errors and all.

Trump returned late Saturday from his first international trip as US president, geared up to combat concerns over aides’ ties to Russia including explosive reports that his son-in-law Jared Kushner sought a secret communications line with Moscow.
