(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Former President Donald J. Trump has notified CNN that he will sue the network if it doesn’t recant statements it made about him and apologize for those statements.
Specifically, Trump is angry that CNN has called him a liar. And he is threatening to file lawsuits against other media outlets for similar statements.
As the Daily Caller writes in, “Trump to Sue CNN“:
“Former President Donald Trump notified CNN of his intention to file a lawsuit against the network for ‘repeated defamatory statements’ in a statement Wednesday.
“Ifrah Law, a Washington-based law firm, filed a Notice of Intent ordering the network, under Florida Statute § 770.02, to ‘publish a full and fair correction, apology, or retraction’ in published pieces or broadcasts that allegedly made ‘false statements’ about the former president. The notice warned that failure to issue an apology will result in a lawsuit.” [emphasis added]
As for other media outlets:
“Trump warned he will be suing other media outlets that have ‘defamed and defrauded the public’ about the 2020 presidential election results.” [emphasis added]
At the heart of Trump’s claim is this:
“The document stated that CNN inaccurately branded Trump as a “liar” and likened him to Adolf Hitler and communist leaders by labeling his election fraud claims as the “Big Lie.” The network has coined the term “Big Lie” in relation to Trump more than 7,700 times since January 2021, the document said.” [emphasis added]
