Trump calls article on Russia’s ties with the Taliban “fake news”

The American president once again demanded that the Pulitzer Prizes be stripped of the media that were caught lying about the alleged collusion of his election headquarters with Russia.

According to TASS, on Saturday on his Twitter page, the US President Donald Trump published a post in which he said that the The New York Times article alleging Russia’s willingness to pay fighters in Afghanistan for the killing of the US troops was a fabricated information canard.

In the message, he provided a link to news material, which states that the speculation of the publication is not confirmed by American intelligence. Speaking at a hearing on the Armed Services Committee of the US House of Representatives on Thursday, the Pentagon’s head, Mark Esper, said that “a number of intelligence agencies cannot confirm the veracity” of the newspaper’s version.
