Trump's tweet is his latest attack on CNN, which he branded earlier this year as "fake news".
President Donald Trump keeps pushing the narrative that CNN is "Fake News", but he wants his fans to believe the reporting of a website that has promoted multiple conspiracy theories. "The outside world does not see the truth from them!" said Trump from his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida. It took no time for CNN to fire back at Trump, and the internet is loving the network's response. To those who follow Comey's semiregular Twitter activity, his tweets are subtle jabs at political leaders, particularly at the one who fired him.
"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost".
The president's tweet Saturday is not the first time he's spoken about CNN in terms of the worldwide community.More news: UN Still Can Send Humanitarian Flights to Sanaa Airport After Recent Strike

Comey responded, indirectly, on social media.
His latest tweet comes about a week after the Department of Justice sued to block AT&T's proposed $85-billion purchase of Time Warner Inc., which owns CNN.
Many, including some CNN reporters and analysts such as Christiane Amanpour and Jake Tapper, also did not sit silent, and criticized Trump for undermining the work of foreign correspondents in war zones around the world. Some see the move as an effort to hand the network over to a conservative buyer, like Rupert Murdoch.
