(FOX NEWS) – CNN was slammed for what many — including White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders — called overwhelmingly negative coverage of President Trump’s visit to the troops overseas.
Both the president and first lady Melania Trump surprised troops stationed in Iraq the day after Christmas, which was followed by another visit with troops in Germany.
However, there was barely a kind word toward the president regarding his trip overseas — at least on CNN. On Wednesday evening, the network’s reporting drew attention to some troops bringing MAGA hats for the president to sign and how this may be against the guidelines, which forbids active members of the military from participating in “political activities.”
The story by CNN politics reporter Eli Watkins, headlined “Troops bringing Trump hats to sign may violate military rule,” was criticized by Sanders, who fired back at CNN on Thursday, tweeting that the network “will attack anyone who supports President Trump, including the brave men and women of our military who fight everyday to protect our freedom.”
