Well, he just kind of came out and said it:
Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 6, 2017
Donald Trump‘s tweet was likely in response to a CNN poll which found 53 percent of Americans oppose Trump’s recent executive order banning travel from seven countries, and 55 percent believe it is an attempt at a Muslim ban. An additional 60 percent oppose Trump’s border wall plan.
That poll is somewhat old, from last Friday. But as CNN’s Brian Stelter points out, CNN’s New Day was discussing the poll before Trump sent out his tweet Monday morning.
