WaPo reporter apologizes after Trump calls out 'wrong' rally photo


"FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", Trump tweeted.

President Donald Trump responded to chants of "lock her up" by citing the "rigged system", while speaking at a rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday night. "FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", the president tweeted.

Trump's tweets attacking Weigel and calling for his termination from the Post were his latest targeting news outlets and reporters on Saturday.

"This is Donald Trump bypassing the mainstream media - he talked about it last night - and going directly to the American people with his message of hope, growth and opportunity", Lewandowski said on "Fox & Friends Weekend".

On facing India, Argentina's forward Vila, who played his 200th global game on the day, said: It is going to be a tough contest. David Condon (29th) and Adam Dixon (60th) responded for England but it was not enough to stop Argentina at the Kalinga Stadium.

An hour earlier, Trump blasted the reporter, Dave Weigel, for posting the photo and demanded an apology. The photo Weigel shared, however, was taken before all the rallygoers or the president had arrived, and the venue eventually did ultimately fill up to what looked like capacity by the time Trump's speech began.

The crowd's chant - referring to Trump's former Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton - and his railing on a "rigged" system harkened back to the 2016 election. "Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!"

Weigel, who said he deleted the photo after about 20 minutes, wrote, "Sure thing: I apologize".

However, US President Donald Trump was not satisfied with frank apologies and instant response by The Washington Post journalist and suggested firing Weigel. I deleted the photo after David Martosko of Daily Mail told me I'd gotten it wrong. "Very fair to call me out", Weigel later tweeted.
