Trump’s comments came after a Washington Post reporter tweeted a misleading picture about the quantity, size, the on Friday, the rally in Pensacola, Fla., while the Trump target took at ABC News’ Brian Ross, and CNN.

In a now-deleted tweet, the Post’s Dave Weigel posted a photo of a half-empty arena to mock trump to say the Rallye was “Packed to the rafters.”

But the photo was not taken while Trump was being spoken to. Trump tweeted photos of the arena when it was full.

“.@Dave Weigel @washingtonpost a fake photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue w/ thousands of people, the outside, on the way,” he tweeted. “Real photos now shown, as I spoke. Full house, not to get a lot of people in the location. Demand apology & withdrawal of FAKE MESSAGES WaPo!”

Weigel tweeted, “of course I apologize,” said he deleted the photo after the other a reporter informed him that he had “got it wrong.”

Sure thing: I apologize. I deleted the photo to @dmartosko told me I’d get it wrong. Was confused by the image of the foot in the lower right corner. https://t.co/fQY7GMNSaD

“It was a bad tweet on my personal account, a story for the Washington Post. I deleted it after 20 minutes. Very fair, give me a call,” Weigel said in another tweet.

It is a poor tweet on my personal account wasn’t on a story for the Washington Post. I deleted it after 20 minutes. Very fair, to call me.

Everything I say on Twitter is a joke, except what I say about @swin24. https://t.co/tI7SQnpoN9

Trump later Weigel to be fired called.

.@Dave Weigel of the Washington Post admitted that his image was a FAKE (fraud?) an almost empty arena shows last night for my speech at Pensacola, when in fact, he knew that the arena was Packed (see also T. V.). FAKE NEWS, he should be fired.

Earlier on Friday, the rally itself, Trump ABC News’ Brian Ross suggested.

“You have these scammers from ABC-they suspended him for a month,” he said. “We should throw him out, what he wrote.”

Ross was suspended for four weeks without pay after he reported that the former national security Advisor, Michael Flynn were directed by Trump — when he was a candidate for President-to contact with the Russians. ABC News later corrected to note the report that the order, Flynn came, as Trump’s President, was already elect.

Trump also said on Friday that CNN had apologized for “a little while” for a reporting error.

“You apologized! Oh, thank you, CNN. Thank you so very much. You should apologize for the last two years,” he said.

CNN had to correct a story that suggested that the Trump campaign, including Donald Trump Jr, had tipped the DNC E-Mails of WikiLeaks chopped out early on, if it is later that the Alarm was on material that are already accessible to the public.

CNN said, “CNN is first to report the date that an E-Mail to the members of the Trump campaign on Wikileaks documents, which was confirmed by two sources, of CNN, was wrong. We have updated our story to the correct date and the correct context for the timing of E-Mails.”

CNN is the first notification of the date, you will receive an E-Mail to the members of the Trump campaign on Wikileaks documents, which was confirmed by two sources, of CNN, was wrong. We have updated our story to the correct date and the correct context for the timing of the E-Mail

No disciplinary action will be taken in the case, a CNN official said in a tweet.

On Saturday, Trump accused CNN of a “malicious and targeted error.”

Fake News CNN made a vicious circle and targeted error yesterday. They were caught red handed, how lonely Brian Ross of ABC News (who should be fired immediately for his “errors”). Watch to see if @CNN fires the person responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?

CNN’s slogan of CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS. Everyone knows this is true, this could, in fact, a fraud on the American Public. There are many outlets, the far more confidence as a Fake-News CNN. Their slogan CNN, THE LEAST trusted NAME IN NEWS!
