Trump to announce 'most dishonest' and 'corrupt media awards' next week.
  Tuesday 02 January, 2018
Trump to announce \'most dishonest\' and \'corrupt media awards\' next week.

President Trump took to social media Tuesday to announce that he would present the "most dishonest" and "corrupt media awards" next Monday.

"I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock." Trump tweeted on Tuesday, adding: "Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!"

Trump, who has frequently slammed the media since before he took office, originally floated the idea of opening a "fake news trophy" contest in November.

"We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me)," Trump said then. "They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!"

In an email solicitation last month, the Trump-Pence Make America Great Again Committee asked donors to take a poll to name the worst "fake news story" of 2017.

Trump's tweet Tuesday comes after he threatened North Korea's Kim Jong Un of having a "bigger & more powerful" nuclear button in the latest ongoing war of words between the two leaders.

In November, a new poll from conservative-leaning Rasmussen found that 40% of all voters thought FOX News deserved the non-award despite Trump's insistence that FOX News not be included in the contest.
