President Trump went off script during a surprise press conference at the White House on Thursday, turning what was supposed to be a mundane announcement of his new labor secretary nominee into an attack on the mainstream media.

The president listed his accomplishments in office thus far and touched on several subjects, including his approval rating, radical Islamic terrorism and “the dishonest media” during a 20-minute opening statement.

“Many reporters will not tell you the truth,” Trump said from the East Room of the White House. “They do not treat the people of our country with the respect they deserve. Unfortunately, much of the media in D.C., New York and Los Angeles speak, not to the people, but for the special interests and those profiting. The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. The level of dishonesty is out of control.”

“I ran for president to present the citizens of our country,” he continued.

Trump said what is published in the news is not representative of what is happening in the White House.

“I turn on the TV, open the newspapers and I see stories of chaos – chaos,” he said. “Yet it is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I can’t get my Cabinet approved.”
