Pres. Trump is once again going after CNN, this time on the international stage. On Twitter Saturday, Trump wrote that “CNN International is a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly.”
CNN’s PR team did not miss a beat, responding a half hour later:
It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world. That's yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst ?

CNN’s response gave them the opportunity to remind followers of its #FactsFirst campaign.
Internationally, CNN has the greatest reach and, in most surveys, the best brand awareness of English-language media.
In the 2016 Ipsos Affluent Global Survey, CNN lead international news outlets with 36 percent reach topping the BBC, which had 27 percent reach, Sky News with 24 percent, Euronews at 20 percent, Bloomberg with 15 percent and CNBC 14 percent. Fox News was not on that list.
