“The media didn’t think we would win. The pundits didn’t think we’d win. The consultants that sucked up all that money… didn’t think we would win. But they all underestimated the power of the people. And the people proved them all wrong.”

“I called the fake news enemy of the people. And they are, enemy of the people.”

 

“They make up sources. They are very dishonest people.”

 

“I’m not against the media,” Trump said. “I am against only the fake news media or the press. Fake.”

 

“I’m against the people who make up sources and make up stories.”

 

“A source said Donald Trump is a horrible human being? Let them say it to my face.”

 

“They shouldn’t use ‘sources.’ They should put in the name of the person. You’d see stories dry up like you wouldn’t believe,” he said.

 

Trump gave credit to the LA Times for polls that got it right in 2016, but said “so many polls” were wrong, including the “Clinton News Network.”

 

“Who knows, maybe they’re just bad at polling? Or maybe they’re not legit. It’s one or the other.”

 

“They get upset when we expose their false stories.”

 

“I love the First Amendment. Nobody loves it more than me. Who uses it more than I do?”

 

“The First Amendment gives Americans the right to criticize fake news, too.”

 

“[Fake news] doesn’t represent the people. It never will represent the people, and we have to do something about it.”

 

“Our victory was dedicated to the country and people who believe in freedom, security and the rule of law… who believe it’s time to stand up for America, stand up for American workers, and stand up for the American flag.”

 

“There is such love in this country for everything we stand for. You saw that on election day, and you’re going to see that more and more.”

 

Bernie’s movement “petered out,” Trump said. But it was “a little rigged against him. Superdelegates!”

 

“A lot of Bernie supporters voted for Trump. Bernie was right on one issue: trade.”

 

“The core conviction of our movement is that we are a nation that puts and will put its own citizens first.”
