With a rather large decision about 2024 still looming, Donald Trump appears to be taking some preemptive action against the infotainment industry spinsters who’ve been working to undermine his political future.
Trump has long been in the crosshairs of the mainstream media. CNN and other outlets have spent countless hours attempting to discourage voters from supporting the former President, despite polls showing just how massively popular he remains.
Now, just a few weeks away from what many are predicting will be an early announcement about 2024, Trump is making sure that CNN and the rest know right where they stand with him.
Former President Donald Trump notified CNN of his intention to file a lawsuit against the network for “repeated defamatory statements” in a statement Wednesday.
Ifrah Law, a Washington-based law firm, filed a Notice of Intent ordering the network, under Florida Statute § 770.02, to “publish a full and fair correction, apology, or retraction” in published pieces or broadcasts that allegedly made “false statements” about the former president. The notice warned that failure to issue an apology will result in a lawsuit.
The former Commander in Chief was dead serious, too.
“Failure to publish such a correction, apology, or retraction will result in the filing of a lawsuit and damages being sought against you, CNN,” the document warned.
Trump warned he will be suing other media outlets that have “defamed and defrauded the public” about the 2020 presidential election results.
“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump said. “I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”
And while Rudy Giuliani and others had a hard time getting their 2020 views in front of a judge, this Trump lawsuit could get some of the former President’s grievances on the official public record.
