Trump to John Dickerson: 'I Love Your Show, I Call It 'Deface the Nation''

May 1, 2017

President Donald Trump said during an interview Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation" that he calls the show "Deface the Nation." Host John Dickerson was interviewing Trump about his first 100 days in office.

While discussing the issue of being "out-traded" by other countries, Trump took a shot at Dickerson and the media.

"I mean our country is being out-traded, at every single point we're losing tremendous amounts of money on trade, and I think actually I have been very consistent," Trump said. "You know, it's very funny when the fake media goes out–you know, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes I must say is you."

"You mean me personally?" Dickerson asked

Trump said how he loved Dickerson's show before calling it "Deface the Nation."

"I love your show, I call it 'Deface the Nation,' but your show is sometimes not exactly correct," Trump said.

Trump went on to discuss his previous comments calling China a "currency manipulator," and how once he got elected their currency was not decreasing anymore.

"But when they talk about currency manipulation–and I did say I would call China if they were a currency manipulator early in my tenure, and then I get there. Number one, they–as soon as I got elected–they stopped," Trump said. "They're not going, it's not going down anymore, their currency."
