President Trump slammed the mainstream media and liberal legislators Wednesday for their outright dishonesty regarding Trump’s recent conversation with Vladimir Putin; pointing out former President Obama made an identical phone call in 2012.

The President vented his frustration on social media; blasting the press’s breathless coverage of his “congratulatory” message to Putin following his re-election this week, saying “The Fake News Media is crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him.”

“I called President Putin of Russia to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also). The Fake News Media is crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him. They are wrong! Getting along with Russia (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing,” tweeted Trump.

“They can help solve problems with North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, ISIS, Iran and even the coming Arms Race. Bush tried to get along, but didn’t have the ‘smarts.”’ Obama and Clinton tried, but didn’t have the energy or chemistry (remember RESET). PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH!” he added.
