I used to think that Trump was exagerating with saying "fake news".
I think he should say it more often and more important should take measures to stop it.
No doubt he'll do it when he's reelected.
Was the man who was brandishing a knife a protester?

BTW the guy in the White House who is constantly crying about “fake news” is using that authoritarian tactic to undermine the institutions of democracy including the media!

I would rather agree with everybody, but I don't.
Nothing of what's said above justifies your claim, and anywhere else neither. But everyone is free to believe everything they want.
Well, sometimes I feel I'm a man on fire
Sorry , wrong text (great song)
Sometimes I feel I'm under pressure

So please

More and more people are realizing that Trump is Putin’s useful idiot.

(Answering about Trump being Putin's useful idiot:
Biden will be China's useful idiot, except that it is true, but I wouldn't go as far as treating him as an idiot. The man, Biden, seems very sympathetic. I like him. Likable doesn't mean anything in politics, except for those who want to use this image)
As a more constructive answer, I'll say that not only Trump, but many people believe very deep inside, that those are really fake news. That's why they (and I ) can identify with what he, and the repubs. are saying. And as well a part of the democrats who don't obey to the radical narrative.
People identify with different things, it's normal, and I try to point out that the media is rather not playing a very honest game and are not helping to bring peace, they encourage law and order in the way that rioters believe should be, and this way is:
revolting, destroying the system, bailing out criminals from prisons, defunding the police, and rejecting anyone who don't believe like they do and who is disagreeing with their view of society.
And calling for racism when they think there is racism, and not when there is actually racism.
That's why I say the media comes with that, because they put in evidence that the cops shot someone but are not saying that it's a threatening criminal who was shot.
With Blake they say it's a black guy who was shot 7 times by the cops, and not what actually should be said; but what actually should be said wouldn't make the news.
What people see is :
Cops --> Bad
Cops --> Racist
Conclusion: see what happened now, people want to kill the cops.
Sorry for long message. I take a break :)

Don't tell me, people are calling this officer racist now?

Maybe it would have been better if he had let the nutter go and stab some innocent victims?

I bet some elements of BLM are defending this violent criminal already.

U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security has been manipulating intelligence to suit Trump:
