Trump Commends Washington Post for Retracting Fake News
(UnitedVoice.com) – In January, the Washington Post (WaPo) reported that then-President Donald Trump allegedly called Georgia’s top election investigator, Frances Watson, and told her she’d be a “national hero” if she worked to “find the fraud” in the 2020 election. Recently the newspaper issued a correction, and now Trump has spoken out.
On March 16, Trump told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that he was “very happy that the Washington Post had the courage” to issue the correction and “admit their mistake.” He also commented on it the day before, issuing a statement through his Save America PAC, saying the “original story was a hoax” and calling for an investigation into “Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine.”
“Time for some other media outlets to correct their fake news coverage of this story as well. You know who you are!”

Many people might not have shown the dignity and respect that Trump did in response to that story. The Washington Post’s misinformation led some people to think he was trying to steal an election. This is the kind of reporting that makes people not trust mainstream media these days.
