Trump’s lawyers believe that CNN has stepped up its campaign against him over fears of running in the 2024 presidential election. The station declined to comment on the news, according to the Reuters news agency.
CNN sought to smear Trump “with a series of disgraceful, inaccurate and increasingly defamatory labels such as racist, Russian slave, rebel and ultimately Hitler,” the former president’s lawyers wrote in documents filed in state court in Fort Lauderdale. Florida raised.
The file also lists at least $475 million that Trump wants in compensation.
A case against Hillary Clinton
Trump’s lawyers said CNN tried to use its enormous influence, ostensibly as a credible news source, to portray Trump in a bad light “with the aim of defeating him politically.”
Trump has no qualms about suing (alleged) enemies because he is no longer president. He has only limited success. A judge recently dismissed the lawsuit accusing his 2016 election rival Hillary Clinton and dozens of others of conspiring against him at the time.
