MAGA TV? Donald Trump Floats Idea Of State-Run U.S. Network For Global Audience

No word on whether Fox News would be involved.
MAGA TV? Or, most likely, Trump TV? news network be called? RFN: The Real Fake News Network? It will be fun to watch whether this becomes a thing or is just another "plan" Trump vomited forth to grab a headline, ideally a news cycle. So, Deadline commenters, what might the new global U.S.
We'll pause a moment to let you digest that.


Let us know what you think.” />
So just as NASA was making an ultra-rare successful Mars landing that was carried live on some outlets, the president of the United States decided to float the idea of a state-run television network "to show the world the way we really are, GREAT." Donald Trump, as we've known for 40 years, hates to cede the spotlight.
And serious. Trump's idea — or that of whomever he heard say it this morning — would be laughable if it weren't so ludicrous. His first tweet is a slam at CNN, which "doesn't do great based on ratings, outside the U.S.," and he appears to think the real ratings gold could come from Citizens of the World being told what's really going on here in 'Murica. OK, so you've read the authoritoiran news-via-tweet above, now it's time to unpack it.

Donald Trump Tweets Walk-Back After Playing Vladimir Putin Lapdog in Helsinki

They also warned that all signs indicate that Putin continues to meddle and will do so going forward into the midterm elections and beyond. By "the past," he presumably is referencing 2016 when, Trump's intel leaders all have agreed, Russia interfered with the U.S. presidential election.
"In order to build a brighter future, we cannot exclusively focus on the past – as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!" Trump emoted via Twitter, en route to the U.S.
Trump concluded his damage-control tweet with the hashtag "#HELSINKI2018" – though most were going with #TreasonSummit, which is why that hashtag was the top trender worldwide, while "#HELSINKI2018" was nowhere to be found in the Top 10.
Trump's tweet:
At the press conference that even Republicans are blasting, Trump also said he had confidence in his intelligence people but that Putin was "extremely strong and powerful" in his denial today. Trump also said he saw no reason why Putin would want to tamper with the 2016 election, trying to debunk the conclusion drawn by his entire intel community.

In his first public statement since his WTF presser following his summit with Russian ruler/former KGB officer Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump tweeted that he has "GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people" – not clear why he all-capped "my" – but added that we cannot focus "on the past."
The damage control already has begun.
