Late-Night Hosts Are Campaigning for Trump's 'Most Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards'

"After provoking North Korea and then insulting Palestine, the President turned to America's greatest foe: the fake-news media", Noah said of Trump's announcement.

"I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR Monday at 5:00 o'clock".

But will the stories that are recognized be "fake" or just unfavorable to the White House? It's more like that wrestling video in which Trump body-slams a guy with a CNN head-something that will excite his base, which already distrusts the press and loves the president's media-bashing.

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting". "Stay tuned!" Mr. Trump ended his tweet on the subject.

Amongst countless revelations, the book claims former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon described a meeting between Donald Trump Jr and a group of Russians was "treasonous".

The book's publication renewed debate on Mr Trump's mental health.

USA: Trump Asks For More Funds to Build Mexico Border Wall

Israel minister plans Trump train station at Western Wall
Israel captured east Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, in 1967, and annexed it in a move not recognized internationally. Since Trump's announcement, at least 15 people have been killed across the occupied Palestinian territories.

After the interview, Trump tore into Tapper, referring to him as a "flunky".

This comes after Stephen Colbert, host of CBS's The Late Show, revealed his show purchased a billboard in Times Square, announcing their nomination.

On Friday the Daily Show with Trevor Noah took out a full colour Oscar-style advert in the New York Times also apparently aimed at sealing a victory in Mr Trump's awards.

The ad includes a photo of Trevor as well as some quotes calling the show "monotonous ... liberal dogma" and "a fake news show".

It is unclear how Mr Trump's awards will be judged.
