Fake news blaming me for traffic due to low gas prices: Trump


President Donald Trump slammed the news media on Wednesday, saying the press was blaming him for traffic jams ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

“You just can’t win with the Fake News Media,” he wrote. “A big story today is that because I have pushed so hard and gotten Gasoline Prices so low, more people are driving and I have caused traffic jams throughout our Great Nation. Sorry everyone!”

“Oil prices getting lower. Great! Like a big Tax Cut for America and the World. Enjoy! $54, was just $82. Thank you to Saudi Arabia, but let’s go lower!” he tweeted.

Trump is known for repeatedly accusing media of disseminating disinformation. The US president has even written a list of what he called winners of his Fake News Awards which included 10 US media outlets.
