President Donald Trump on Friday Morning called on sports network ESPN to apologize for its “untruth” following one of their anchors calling Trump a white supremacist earlier this week.
Trump claimed that the network’s politics have caused a financial decline, an often used line of thought when the president criticizes the media.
ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!

On Monday, ESPN’s Jamele Hill sent out a series of tweets labeling trump a “bigot” and “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”
