President Trump believes he has found an international ally in his crusade against the media.
Via Twitter, he pledged Saturday to “fight the #FakeNews” with Polish President Andrzej Duda, whose right-wing party has been accused of a crackdown on a free press.
Last year, Duda signed a law putting state-owned media under government control because – according to an aide – he didn’t believe they were objective.
Trump was responding to a Thursday tweet from Duda after a widely circulated video appeared to show Polish first lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda ignoring Trump’s handshake, and shaking first lady Melania Trump’s hand instead during the first couple’s trip to Poland.
