Mitch McConnell Rebuts Trump: ‘Most News Is Not Fake’


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took an indirect shot at President Trump today when he said that “most news is not fake.”

At an event in Louisville with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the top Senate Republican once again responded to the complaints that they haven’t “done much yet,” saying that this current Congress still has time to get work done.

This time McConnell indirectly referenced the President’s many complaints of “fake news” when he responded to a question about the press, saying the following:

“There are a couple of services I look at before I leave home every morning. It gives me a synopsis of the articles… My view is most news is not fake.”

The President tweeted both last night and this morning about “fake news”:
