Trump: Media are ‘scum’

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Monday that he despises the way most journalists cover his 2016 campaign. “The press has a lower approval rating than Congress,” he said at a morning rally in Atkinson, N.H. “They’re scum,” Trump said. “They’re horrible people. They are so illegitimate. They are just terrible people.” “Some of the people in the press are honorable,” the New York business mogul added. “But you’ve got 50 percent who are terrible people.” Trump then argued the only group he dislikes more than the media are the career politicians in Washington, D.C./The Hill.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with Donald Trump re: his outlook on the media?
