Donald Trump on Sunday accused Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton of having “no guts” to take on the “fake news” media, saying “you’re not even going to have the guts” not to go after them.
Trump made the comments on ABC’s “This Week” after he was asked about Clinton’s assertion that the Republican nominee has “no spine” to go on the attack against the fake news media.
“She’s got no guts.
She’s got nothing to prove,” Trump said.
“She’s a phony.
You’re not gonna make it the hell up on the way you’re going.”
Trump also said that Clinton’s recent comments on a recent episode of “60 Minutes” are “really disturbing” and said the media is “playing games” with the election.
“The fake news is playing games,” Trump continued.
“They’re trying to scare you into going against the election results, they’re trying in their own way, they’ve been playing games with this election, so you’re not really going to get that.
You’ll be okay.
You will be okay.”
Clinton responded to the “60 minutes” segment on Twitter on Monday.
“No matter what you read or hear, it’s not true.
This is a campaign of lies and the fake media has no respect for facts.
If the election is rigged, we will make sure that everyone knows that,” she said.
The New York Times reported that the Democratic nominee has been under pressure to go all-out against the media since the election, particularly since the news media began to cover the Democratic National Convention with a “rigged” camera rig.
