President Trump unloaded on the mainstream media and “fake news” during a press conference on Thursday, slamming journalists over their refusal to cover the Clinton-Russia Uranium scandal while continuing to obsess over allegations his campaign “colluded” with Russia to steal the White House.
Trump was speaking with reporters following a joint press conference with the Governor of Puerto Rico when he brought up the Uranium scandal; scolding the media for ignoring the story because it impacts “people that they protect.”
“Uranium is a big subject. If the mainstream media would cover the Uranium scandal and that Russia has 20% of our uranium for whatever reason, and a lot of people understand what those reasons may be,” said Trump.
“I think that’s your Russia story. That’s your real Russia story. Not a story where they talk about collusion and there was none, it’s a hoax. Your real Russia story is uranium and how they got all that uranium; a vast percentage of what we have,” he added.
Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn’t want to follow!

“That to me is one of the big stories of the decade, not just now, of the decade. The problem is that the mainstream media does not want to cover that story, because that affects people that they protect, so they don’t like covering that story,” said the President.
“But the big story is how Russia got 20% of our uranium, and frankly it’s a disgrace. It’s a disgrace that the fake news won’t cover it,” he added.
