Trump Blasts Fake News ‘MSDNC’ as He Claims He’ll Win New Hampshire
President Donald Trump attacked CNN and MSNBC but used a popular right-wing term for the network: MSDNC. His tweet has not yet been deleted and users who do not support the President have criticized him for using the strange insult. The DNC refers to Democratic National Committee.
“Fake News CNN and MSDNC have not surprisingly refused to talk about my record setting number of voters in New Hampshire (and in Iowa),” the President tweeted.
“That’s why they are poorly rated Fake News! I will win both states in November.”

Hillary Clinton won narrowly in New Hampshire in 2016, though Trump has repeatedly claimed that people were bused in from Massachusetts to rig the vote against him. Trump has been talking about New Hampshire a lot recently and visited the state before the Democratic primary.
The President has frequently attacked both CNN and MSNBC. The term ‘MSDNC’ seems to have originally referred to a parody Twitter account that was suspended in 2019 but seems to have returned in some form. Trump has clearly tried to claim that Democrats control the network, as his conservative supporters have also suggested.
