Trump Tweets that “Regan Had the Same Problem” as He Faces with “Fake News”

President Trump on Sunday compared those who question his ability to serve to those who questioned former President Ronald Reagan’s fitness to serve.

“I’ve had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President,” Trump tweeted on Sunday. “Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. So will I!”

Trump characterized Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” as a “Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author.”

Trump claimed his political opponents and the media were “taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence.”

Five years after Reagan left the White House he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
