CNN cut Trump’s speech after he criticized the media

Less than 10 minutes into President Trump’s Orlando rally speech, CNN cut away due to the president’s criticism of fake news media and the crowd chanting “CNN sucks.”

After officially announcing his 2020 reelection campaign in the almost-full arena, Trump referred back to his first announcement in 2015, which he said was “a defining moment in American history." Blaze Media reported that Trump then pointed to the media, saying, "ask them right there."

This and other comments pointed at the “fake news” in the back evoked loud chants and cheers from the crowd.

At this point, CNN's John Berman broke in to the broadcast, saying "Within two minutes he did talk about the economy, but within four minutes it was attacks on the media."

CNN’s censorship of the rally seems to confirm Trump’s pointed remarks, for the media attempts to stifle anything that is not praise and support of their policies.
