Trump Not Taking It Anymore from CNN – He’s Madder than a Hornet

Trump is punching back at CNN. He has notified the network of his intention to file a lawsuit against them for “repeated defamatory statements” in a statement Wednesday.

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.

If CNN fails to do this, it will result in a lawsuit.

“Failure to publish such a correction, apology, or retraction will result in the filing of a lawsuit and damages being sought against you, CNN,” the document warned.

Former President Trump also warned other media outlets that have “defamed and defrauded the public” about the 2020 presidential election results.

“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump said. “I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”

The notice made clear to CNN that their claims that Trump was “illegitimately elected” in the 2016 presidential election went unchallenged by the network. The notice also claimed that CNN “fed a narrative” that repeatedly defamed Trump’s character before and after the 2020 presidential election.

It also noted that CNN inaccurately branded Trump as a “liar” and likened him to both Adolf Hitler and communist leaders. This challenge focuses on CNN coining the term “The Big Lie,” and they used it more than 7,700 times. 

“In this instance, President Trump’s comments are not lies: He subjectively believes that the results of the 2020 presidential election turned on fraudulent voting activity in several key states,” the document said.

CNN declined to comment on the potential lawsuit.
