Trump demands MSNBC owner be investigated for ‘treason’ – live

Donald Trump has demanded that the parent company of MSNBC and NBC be investigated for “treason” over what he described as “one-side and vicious coverage”.

In a Truth Social rant on Sunday, the former president threatened to launch a probe into Comcast if he wins the 2024 race.

“They are a true threat to Democracy and are, in fact, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! The Fake News Media should pay a big price for what they have done to our once great Country!” he wrote.

Mr Trump spent much of the weekend ranting on his social media platform.

In another post on Sunday, he demanded that “all” Senate Democrats resign over the charges facing Senator Bob Menendez – at a time when Mr Trump is refusing to step aside from the 2024 race while facing four criminal cases.

Earlier, he appeared to threaten Mark Milley, the outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, with “death” and praised the UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak for rolling back on climate target policies.

This comes as Mr Trump is preparing to skip the second Republican presidential debate on Wednesday – to instead give a primetime speech to union members in Detroit.
