Donald Trump announced the winners …

US President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he had awarded his promised prize to “fake media”.

“And here are the winners of the fake news contest,” Trump wrote, accompanying his entry with a link to the Republican Party website.

“Despite the very corrupt and dishonest coverage in the media, there are a lot of wonderful reporters I respect and many good news that the American people can be proud of!” – added Trump.

The list was headed by the Alfred Nobel Memorial Economy Prize winner and columnist for the New York Times Paul Krugman for his prophesy on the night of the presidential election on November 9, 2016 that the markets would not survive the election of Trump.

“It seems that the president will be Donald Trump, and the markets are falling … When asked if they will recover, the original answer is: never,” Krugman wrote.

For the year since the inauguration of Trump, the stock market index S & P 500 has grown by almost 25%, the high-tech index NASDAQ – by 30%.

In second place among the “laureates” was journalist Brian Ross. Ross said, citing sources, that Trump’s ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn intends to testify that Trump, during the campaign, instructed him “to contact the Russians.”

The journalist was permanently suspended from ABC News

The third place in the list of “laureates” was the CNN television channel, which reported that the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner received a proposal from the WikiLeaks website to examine documents of the National Committee of the Democratic Party that were at the disposal of the website even before they were published.

The fourth place for “fake news” went to Time magazine for reporting that Trump had allegedly ordered the removal from the Oval Office in the White House of the bust of Martin Luther King – an outstanding fighter for the rights of African Americans.

The fifth place went to the Washington Post reporter Dave Wigel who posted on Twitter a photo of the stadium, where he was supposed to speak in front of Trump supporters. The photo shows that the stands are half empty, and the ironic signature says: “Full to the eyeballs.” In fact, the photo was taken for a sufficiently long period before the event, and by the time of Trump’s performance the stands were indeed filled to capacity. Trump did not fail to read the journalist on his Twitter. Wigel removed his tweet and apologized.

In the sixth place CNN statement, as if Trump overfed the fish in the pool during a visit to Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

In seventh place – CNN again with the statement about “Russian ties” Anthony Scaramucci, who only stayed for a few days as the director of the White House for communications. This report was later disavowed by the television channel.

In the eighth place is the report of Newsweek, where it was alleged that the first lady of Poland refused to shake Trump’s hand.

On the ninth, the CNN report, which stated that the director of the FBI, James Komi, who had been fired by the president, never told Trump that he was not under investigation on the “Russian case.”

In the tenth place – a report from the New York Times that the administration removed from the government’s site a study on climate change.

At the eleventh place, Trump placed all the reports about his “collusion with Russia” at once.

“Collusion with Russia is probably the greatest fake that has ever been pinned down to the American people.” There is no collusion! ” – Trump wrote.

In addition to the winners of the “fake news” prize, Trump also cited a number of news stories, which the media, in his opinion, did not say enough. Among them – good performance in the economy, the fight against terrorism and the appointment of conservative Nil Gorsach to the US Supreme Court.
