If given a chance, Donald Trump wants to change the US Constitution. He wants to have a different system than the First Amendment, a system that would give him a better chance at winning a lawsuit against the press.
In a recent interview, Trump was asked if he thought the press was too protected. Trump answered;
“Our press is allowed to say whatever they want and get away with it. And I think we should go to a system where if they do something wrong… I’m a big believer tremendous believer of the freedom of the press. Nobody believes it stronger than me but if they make terrible, terrible mistakes and those mistakes are made on purpose to injure people. I’m not just talking about me I’m talking anybody else then yes, I think you should have the ability to sue them.”
Maybe a Russia or China type government controlled media would be more appealing to Donald Trump. The government telling the media what to say on television and what to write in their publication just seems to fit the model of a Trump presidency.
