Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump credited the power of “new media” while lambasting the “total dishonesty of the press” during a special Reddit AMA this week.
The hotel mogul took to the /r/The_Donald online forum thread Wednesday for over an hour answering over a dozen questions from site users, who asked about everything from Hillary’s missing press conferences to how he plans to secure Bernie supporter
Trump also made clear he believed the new independent media to be more truthful than establishment lapdog outlets.
“How will you, as president, tackle this protected class of media elites without stepping on the first amendment rights of average Americans?” questioned another user.
“I have been very concerned about media bias and the total dishonesty of the press,” Trump said. “I think new media is a great way to get out the truth.”
