The Donald Trump campaign is lashing out at CNN, which is digging in as the two sides clash over an advertisement the campaign wants to run on the cable news channel.
The AP reports that the campaign is upset with CNN’s refusal to air an ad touting Trump’s achievements in his first 100 days in office.
“CNN said it requested that the campaign remove a portion that referred to the mainstream media as fake news,” the AP reports. But the campaign reportedly said CNN rejected the ad because it “doesn’t fit their narrative.”
CNN is quoted in the story saying: “The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false and per policy will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted.”
The AP notes: “The Trump campaign said the ad, which says ‘America has rarely seen such success,’ is running on Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network.”
