On the weekend, President Donald Trump continued to contest with corporate media. At a speech he delivered at the Celebrate Freedom Rally at the Kennedy Center on Saturday in Washington DC, he said: “The fake media is trying to silence us but we will not let them.” Trump said, “The people know the truth. The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House, but I’m president and they’re not.”

“The dishonest media will not stop us from accomplishing our objectives on behalf of the American people,” he said. “Their agenda is not your agenda.”

According to Trump, the media have “destroyed themselves." He said, "Instead of being subtle and smart, they used the hatchet and the people saw it right from the beginning,” he said.

On Twitter, Trump continued to do battle with corporate media outlets by going to social media. He tweeted on Saturday, “The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media – but remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media.” Trump wrote, “I had to beat Fake News, and did. We will continue to WIN!”

On Sunday, he issued a tweet that featured a video in which he is seen grappling and then punching another person over whose face was superimposed the logo of CNN. It was an edited version of a video that recorded his appearance at ringside at a WWE wresting match, two years ago.
