Trump campaign says CNN refuses to run ad touting success

The ad entitled "First 100 Days" highlights Trump's first weeks in office, "exhibiting clear vision, resolute leadership, and an uncompromising dedication to the American people, just as he promised throughout the campaign", the sponsor says in a statement.

Ever since President Trump started calling CNN "fake news", the network's anchors have had to interrupt their normal activities to defend their reporting.

CNN is refusing to run a Donald Trump ad marking the president's 100 days in office because it refers to the mainstream media as "fake news".

The government is also taking action to make housing more affordable for homebuyers and renters with Ontario's Fair Housing Plan. Employment in 2017 is forecast to increase by 1.3 per cent, or 94,000 net new jobs, following 1.1 per cent growth in 2016.

There was no immediate confirmation from CNN to back up Trump's claim, but a CNN fact check of the ad noted that "the bulk of Trump's accomplishments have been made through executive action or memorandum, something Republicans decried former President Barack Obama for doing during his second term". The narrator in the ad then says, "You wouldn't know it from watching the news".

"The Truth Mainstream Media Refuses To Tell", was the headline of the announcement by the Trump campaign.

In an email sent out to supporters, the campaign, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc, called CNN "fake news", a barb often used by the president himself. Per our policy, it will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted.

According to the Trump campaign, "It is absolutely shameful to see the media blocking the positive message that President Trump is trying to share with the country".

One of Trump's campaign committees quickly dispatched a fundraising pitch tied to the ad flap. "By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship is biased and fears an opposing point of view".
