From making America great again to weeding the terrorists out, President Donald Trump has made many outlandish claims during his first year in office.
I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!

But none matches what he said recently. If the American president is dead serious about it, which he often is not, he will be presenting awards for ‘most dishonest’ and ‘corrupt media’ next Monday.
Trump has frequently criticized the media since taking office last year. He first came up with the idea of starting a "fake news trophy" contest in November.
Donald Trump has said he will announce the names of most dishonest and corrupt media houses and award them
"We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me)," Trump said back in November. "They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!"
