President Trump celebrated the abysmal ratings of multiple mainstream media outlets in a Truth Social post on Wednesday. 

“It’s an incredible and very beautiful thing to watch,” said the 45th president. Reveling in the loss of viewership, Trump continued, “After all these years, the purveyors of Fake News are being crushed in the ratings.”

Last Friday, the WRAP reported that CNN, a never-Trump network, just suffered its “lowest ratings in nine years.” Adding insult to injury, the news station built by Ted Turner announced earlier in January that the company is permanently closing the doors to its Atlanta headquarters.

In classic Trump style, the businessman responded to the reports of CNN’s closure by saying, “that’s what fake news gets you.”

Indeed, Donald Trump is getting the last laugh after years of negative coverage from companies like CNN that profited by slandering him as a presidential candidate and a sitting U.S. president. The network’s floundering popularity was highlighted between Jan. 16 and Jan. 22 when CNN failed to surpass 450,000 viewers. Additionally, only an embarrassing 93,000 viewers were between the ages of 25-54.

In contrast, the channel was experiencing “its most profitable year ever in 2016,” thanks to coverage of Trump’s presidential campaign. In addition, the age demographics of 25-54 “climbed 51%” that year. Former president of CNN Worldwide, Jeff Zucker, said: “2016 was the biggest year in the history of cable news and 2017 will perhaps be even bigger.”

Undoubtedly, Donald Trump’s 2016 candidacy for president restored relevancy to cable news networks and skyrocketed their profit margins to new heights. Overall, Trump’s political journey has proven that left-wing news stations do not perform as well without him, no matter how much they despise the real estate mogul.

Emphatically, the Florida-based businessman issued a warning to Fox News within the same post. “Fox News, your numbers are way down,” declared Trump. The 2024 presidential candidate cautioned Fox News from becoming like “Fake News CNN” and “MSDNC.” Trump projected a bleak future for CNN and MSNBC. “Sorry to say, but the only thing that can save them is the Trump Presidency,” he added. “I told them that a long time ago, but they just wouldn’t listen,” concluded Trump.
