Donald Trump spoke to reporters on Saturday while visiting Canada for the G-7 summit before his planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. The current occupant of the White House said that he invented the term ‘fake news’ as if that’s something to be proud of, then he took a shot at the press, namely CNN, the network the thin-skinned POTUS deemed to be ‘the worst.’ Trump asked a reporter which station he worked for, and when he said CNN, Trump said, “Fake News CNN. The worst.”
And then, of course, he brought up his ‘haters.’ Then, the former reality show star spoke about his upcoming trip to North Korea. “This is probably rarely been done. It’s unknown territory in the truest sense,” Trump told reporters. “I really feel confident. I really feel that Kim Jong-Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity.”
But, Trump added, “he’ll never have that opportunity again.”
Trump then said that he will know “within the first minute” whether or not the North Korea summit is going well. Just like that. Mr. ESP is not going to get played by Kim.
“How?” a reporter asked him.
“My touch,” It said. “My feel. That’s what I do.”

Actually, Mr. Art of the Feel has failed to secure one deal during his one and a half years in office — even with his own party, with the exception of the GOP tax scam that he promoted. And that tax plan will not help Trump’s coal miners or his white supporters in the midwest who voted for him because they felt forgotten.
Trump did not invent the term ‘fake news,’ by the way. It was used in World War I then it resurfaced in the Nazi era. It’s 2018 and Godwin’s Law is dead.
This season of the Trump presidency almost feels like they’re playing reruns.
