Trump demands sacking of Washington Post journo for tweeting 'phony' pic

President Donald Trump will speak at the Pensacola Bay Center on Friday

"Packed house, many people unable to get in". I deleted the photo after David Martosko of Daily Mail told me I'd gotten it wrong.

"Sure thing: I apologize".

President Donald Trump singled out a Washington Post reporter for repeated criticism Saturday evening, suggesting he be fired even after the reporter apologized for tweeting a misleading photo he had already deleted.

A short time later, Weigel quoted Trump's tweet and wrote "Packed to the rafters", attaching a photo that showed hundreds of available seats in the lower and upper levels.

"Weigel of the Washington Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an nearly empty arena last night for my speech in Pensacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on TV). FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", Trump said in a tweet.

Senior UN official meets North Korea's deputy overseas minister
The KCNA earlier reported that he met North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and visited United Nations project sites Thursday. North Korean officials rarely brief the media on the content of discussions with foreign dignitaries.

Dave Weigel, who covers politics for the newspaper, had posted a picture on his Twitter account which showed an empty arena when Trump was addressing a public meeting. Trump launched a predictable attack on CNN over that story on Saturday morning, and had called out another big retracted story from ABC News at his rally on Friday night. "Watch to see if @CNN fires those responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?" he tweeted. Many have taken the opportunity to blast CNN for the error, and it's all but certain Trump will do the same at some point during the event.

"These outlets want to make the news and not report the news", he said.

"America is being respected again overseas and we are taking care of our citizens at home and we're going to have safety and we have a lot more now", said the president, who appeared buoyed as he headlined his first campaign rally in more than two months.

President Donal Trump took to Twitter this week to support Moore, saying Democratic candidate Doug Jones would be "a puppet" for Democratic leaders.
