â€œItâ€™s Not CNNâ€™s Job to Represent the U.S. to the World,â€ CNN Wrote
Donald Trump, having returned from his latest golf outing, took to Twitter Saturday evening to praise Fox News and to criticize CNN. (Again.)
â€œFox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly,â€ the president wrote. â€œThe outside world does not see the truth from them!â€

The attack is the presidentâ€™s latest offering in his war with the network, and his latest praise of Fox News.
CNN Communications responded to the presidentâ€™s tweet shortly after, advising that it isnâ€™t the networkâ€™s â€œjob to represent the US. to the world.â€
â€œThatâ€™s yours,â€ the networkâ€™s communications team wrote. â€œOur job is to report the news.â€
It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world. That's yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst ðŸŽ

Earlier this month, when pressed on embattled Senate hopeful Roy Moore, the president advised that â€œeven when Iâ€™m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television. I know they like to say that.â€
â€œPeople that donâ€™t know me, they like to say I watch television, people with fake sources,â€ Trump continued. â€œYou know, fake reporters, fake sources. But I donâ€™t get to watch much television. Primarily because of documents.â€
