    Trump Issues Statement After CNN Town Hall Ratings Come In

    Published on

    Thursday, former President Donald Trump defended the network that he once called “fake news.”

    Wednesday, CNN transmitted a town hall with Trump, the Republican frontrunner for the 2024 presidential election, in New Hampshire, which prompted widespread media outrage.

    According to The Hill, despite the ire of liberal commentators, CNN attracted more than 3 million viewers for the event, far more than in recent weeks for the 8 p.m. time slot occupied by the town hall.

    Trump stated that the liberal network’s decision was prudent.

    “People are criticizing CNN for giving me a Forum to tell the TRUTH,” the former president posted on his Truth Social platform. “I believe it was a very smart thing that they did, with Sky High Ratings that they haven’t seen in a very long time. It was by far the biggest Show of the night, the week, and the month!”

    “The Radical Left screamed, ‘Take it down, take it down,’ during the Show, because they saw that I was making so many important points on the Border, Energy Independence, the Afghanistan Catastrophe, Inflation, the Economy, Russia/Ukraine, and so much more. Many minds were changed on Wednesday night by listening to Common Sense, and sheer ‘Brilliance,’” Trump added in a second tweet.

    Not everybody concurred. The Washington Post reported that CNN employees and members of the liberal media were gnashing their teeth.

    “It should have been a taped interview where you could fact-check him. The audience was laughing at his comments about Jean Carroll. Disgraceful,” the Post quoted a CNN personality it did not name as saying.

    This was in allusion to a woman who sued Trump for sexual assault and was awarded $5 million.

    In the opening monologue of his show, CNN host Anderson Cooper defended his network’s decision to air the Trump town hall but told viewers he understood their outrage over the “disturbing” display.

    “You have every right to be outraged today and angry and never watch this network again,” Cooper said. CONTINUE READING…
