Trump hits out at 'fake news' following Kushner reports

As scandal ensnares the White House, the president Sunday pushed back on charges from what he described as "the fake news media".

US President Donald Trump has accused media outlets of "fabricating" much of the news they publish about the White House and inventing anonymous sources on which the reports are ostensibly based.

His son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, is under scrutiny in the FBI's probe into Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign.

Trump, of course, has said that it isn't only #FakeNews that's the enemy.

In an earlier tweet Sunday, Trump hailed what he called the trip's "great success".

Mr Kelly told Fox News Sunday there was nothing wrong with the Trump transition team trying to build relationships with the Russians as they prepared to take over the White House. CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett reported that administration officials feel the leaks in recent days have been "coordinated and timed".

Earlier this term it looked as if all five players would be certain to face the exit door come the end of this campaign. The 32-year-old has made 332 appearances since his bargain 6.5 million pound ($7.6 million) move from Espanyol .

The President, who significantly curtailed his presence on Twitter during his first global tour - which took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, The Vatican, Brussels and Sicily - could certainly be irritated at the revelations regarding Kushner published by The Washington Post last Friday in an article citing "US.officials briefed on intelligence reports".

The president did not hold a press conference during his nine-day trip, leaving top White House aides to give brief remarks and take a few questions.

"I think we hit a home run", President Trump told a crowd of United States service members at an Italian military base on Saturday as he wrapped up his whirlwind first trip overseas.

White House officials defended the concept of secret communications channels without commenting specifically on the Kushner case.

The president will be presented with proposals to set up messaging teams both inside and outside the White House to handle rapid response on all fronts.
