Trump Rips BuzzFeed: ‘A Very Sad Day for Journalism, But a Great Day for Our Country!’

President Donald Trump called it a “very sad day for journalism” after Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s office issued a statement disputing Buzzfeed’s report claiming he ordered Michael Cohen to lie in front of Congress.

“Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited ‘Dossier,’ paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based!” Trump tweeted. “A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!”

He then followed it up with a tweet once again repeating his “enemy of the people” claims.

While this is Trump’s first comments on the matter, the president has also been retweeting others’ comments on the Special Counsel’s statement and trashing BuzzFeed.

The retweets included comments from RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, campaign manager Brad Parscale, Dan Bongino and Donald Trump Jr., who he called “a son who loves his dad.”
