On Wednesday, Donald Trump delivered a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference.
The speech, which was mostly focused on the economy, touched on a number of subjects.
First, the Republican nominee was expected to take aim at the media for its coverage of his presidential campaign.
Trump’s speech included some of the same talking points he used during his 2016 presidential campaign, which included the idea that “journalists” are being “bullied” by the media and that Trump “is being bullied” for his outspoken criticism of the media.
But the speech also touched on other topics.
For example, Trump made it clear that he was going to “fight back” against the “fake news” media and his Republican colleagues, including the “globalist” Hillary Clinton.
“The establishment media has become so dishonest,” Trump said.
“They want to keep it all in the dark.”
Trump also took a shot at the “bully pulpit” that is “the media” for not reporting the truth about Trump’s “bizarre behavior.”
“The phony press is trying to cover it up, and they’re trying to make the president look like a villain, because they know he’s not a villain,” Trump told the crowd.
“We are the heroes, we are the real heroes.”
Trump’s anti-media message was a major theme in his speech.
In it, he promised that he would fight back against the media, and he mentioned the phrase “bungling the media” to describe that strategy.
“I’ll fight back,” Trump declared.
“When the media lies, and when the media covers things that are not true, they’re called the bungle press.
The bungle media is the phony media.
They’re the ones that don’t report the facts, they cover things up, they make up things, and then when it comes to reporting the facts they just lie.
That’s what I will fight back.
I will stand up to them.
I am not afraid of them.
We are going to win.”
Trump went on to say that the “media is in the business of trying to take us down, and it’s going to be fought back against.
The press is the enemy.
It is the one enemy that the American people have to win,” he said.
In his speech, Trump also criticized the mainstream media for failing to cover the recent shootings in Orlando and San Bernardino, California.
The attacks, which took the lives of at least 49 people, were the deadliest in modern U.S. history.
But despite the fact that Trump has made his “banger pulpit” a focal point for his campaign, he has continued to attack the media as the reason the U.K. voted to leave the European Union in June.
“So, the media is really trying to stop us from winning,” Trump argued.
“Because I’m telling you the media will never, ever stop us.
And the only way they can stop us is to take the people that we’re talking about, and make them look bad.”
Trump, however, didn’t explicitly mention CNN or MSNBC, but his message was clear: He will not be bullied by the mainstream press.
