President Donald Trump on Saturday suggested a Washington Post reporter be fired over a misleading tweet.

Weigel's breezy assessment followed a firestorm of criticism, after he posted a misleading photo of a mostly empty arena, shot prior to Trump's Friday rally in Pensacola, Florida.

The Post reporter, David Weigel, had earlier tweeted a photo of the crowd gathered at Pensacola Bay Center for Trump's speech there Friday evening, showing numerous empty seats. And, as you will see below, Weigel knew he was publishing a photo not taken during the actual rally. He deleted the tweet after learning that the venue had not yet filled up.

Weigel quickly deleted the tweet after another journalist pointed out his error. "FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", the president tweeted.

"DaveWeigel WashingtonPost put out a phoney photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue, w/ thousands of people outside, on their way in". "Real photos now shown as a I spoke".

U.S. President Donald Trump has rarely been shy to voice his disapproval of the Washington Post, a newspaper he has repeatedly denounced as being a "fake news" organization.

The President of the United States returned to Twitter Sunday afternoon to provide the world with his latest attack on the free press. "And I said to everybody, 'Get yourself a lawyer and sue ABC News'". "Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner", he tweeted. In a subsequent tweet, Weigel further explained that the message was a "bad tweet from my personal account, not a story for Washington Post", but that it was "very fair" for Trump to call him out over it. Trump has slammed Weigel and demanded immediate deletion of the controversial pictures.

Reporters asked spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the president's fondness for attacking some things as fake news while choosing not to attack false news reports allegedly circulated by Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

CNN, meanwhile, had to issue a correction on a story that falsely claimed Donald Trump Jr. had been offered hacked Wikileaks documents before they were made public. The correction undercut the main thrust of CNN's report, which had been seized on by critics of the president.

Trump didn't hesitate to throw ABC under the bus as well for "fraudster" Brian Ross' erroneous report on former national security adviser Michael Flynn, claiming the network should've fired the now suspended reporter.
