Letter: Trump doesn’t mind bad press if it’s true

To the editor:

On Feb. 17, you carried an AP story about Donald Trump’s Thursday news conference. The article said that “Over and over, he accused the political press of being dishonest and suggested that any negative coverage of his administration was ‘fake news.’”

Actually Trump said that if he makes a mistake and the press writes bad about him, he can handle that. He doesn’t mind bad stories if they are true. This is just the opposite of what the AP article said. I recommend that the Leader fact check the stories it publishes to make sure they are true.
