Burned by e book, Trump takes concern with nation's libel legal guidelines

Fire and Fury

This comes after the release of a controversial tell-all book about Trump's first months in the White House.

"There are no federal libel laws, so it will be hard for Trump to "open them up, ' as he called for during the campaign", said Alexandra Ellerbeck, the North America Program Coordinator for Committee to Protect Journalists".

"So we're going to take a strong look at that", Trump said. He can look all he wants, but he can't do anything about it. Cue cable news fainting anyway.

President Trump spent much of his first official Cabinet meeting in 2018 touting his administration's "tremendous" achievements in 2017.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday vowed to take a "strong look" at the nation's libels laws in the wake of the publication of the best-selling "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", which portrays him as a dysfunctional leader presiding over an administration in chaos.

"We want to see something happen with DACA", he said.

Trump has a long record of threatening to sue journalists who write things about him that he does not like.

"A lot of those anchors sent us letters saying that was one of the greatest meetings they've ever witnessed", Mr. Trump said, adding that he had received "about two hours" of positive coverage from news networks, "and then they went a little bit south on us".

"Trump is not changing - and he never will change - the libel laws in this country, despite his rhetoric", said Richard Roth, a NY based white collar litigator and founder of the Roth Law Firm.

Meanwhile, the president also addressed his latest call with South Korean President Moon Jae-In, who Mr. Trump says, was thankful for the role the US played in the talks between North Korea and South Korea this week over the North's participation in the Winter Olympics.

"If Trump doesn't win in three years, you'll all be out of business", he said. That's because America's federal defamation and libel "laws" aren't really laws at all, in the sense of statutes and regulations that can be modified by congressional or executive action.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he intends to "take a strong look" at libel laws to make sure they cover published statements that are malicious and known to be untrue - the very definition of libel. That standard derives from a 1964 Supreme Court ruling, New York Times Co. v. Sullivan. No lawsuit has yet been filed.
