Trump, Polish president bond over disdain for ‘fake news’

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.
