WASHINTON, D.C. - The White House issued a statement early Saturday following multiple reports that claimed President Trump called himself a genius.
“The liberal media has attacked President Trump since day one. This is just another attempt to frame the President as a liar,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“We want to make this as clear as possible: President Trump would never lie to the American people and claim to be a genius by any definition of the word. Reports that the President called himself a ‘genius’ and ‘really smart’ are obviously fake news.”
The White House said it is willing to join French President Emmanuel Marcon’s fight against fake news.
