After one of CNN’s producers was caught boasting about the network’s opposition to Trump winning the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump called it a “huge campaign breach.”
In an interview that aired on Friday, the 45th President of the United States addressed the Project Veritas video that revealed what CNN technical director Charlie Chester said about, what he thought was, a date, according to The Daily Mail.

“That is a breach of the campaign rules. They are committing a major campaign breach. When you look at what they did, it’s mind-boggling,” Trump said.
The video, which was released by the investigative reporting organization Project Veritas, purports to show a CNN executive claiming that the network specializes in misinformation and is hell-bent on removing Donald Trump from office.
“Look at what we [CNN] did, we got Trump out. I’m going to say it, because I’m 100 percent convinced that if it hadn’t been for CNN, Trump would not have been voted out… In the video, CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester says, “I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”
And he clarified how they did it by emphasizing both Trump’s and Joe Biden’s fitness.
“I think [Trump’s] hand was trembling or something.
We called in so many doctors to tell a story that was based entirely on speculation: that he was neurologically impaired and losing his mind. He’s unfit for — whatever it is. We were making up a story about which we had no prior knowledge. That’s what I’m talking about — I think that’s propaganda,” Chester explained.
“We would still show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that he’s fit, and him in aviator sunglasses,” says the source. He said, “Like you paint him as a young geriatric.”
But Trump’s true rage was reserved for social media sites that had suspended him from their websites.
He explained, “I’m getting the word out because we’re doing [press] releases.”
“When I first started with Twitter, it was like a fail idea, a fail site. It became thrilling as a result. To be honest with you, I think I had a lot to do with it being exciting. It is now tedious. “It’s no longer good,” Trump declared.
Trump, who has been at odds with social media firms since being kicked off their sites after the January Capitol riot, has called for further control of their operations.
He said that they were skewed against Democrats and that they needed to be investigated more thoroughly.
“They have to be solid, and they can’t be dominated by Amazon, Google, or others who might take them off the air tomorrow,” Trump said.
“Antitrust is needed. He said, “You have to do something about it.” “Look, for what you said, the Democrats lie, cheat, and steal. They’re ruthless.”
And, almost as if to demonstrate its bias, Twitter suspended Project Veritas president James O’Keefe’s account after he released the CNN technical director’s video.
It said, “The account you referenced (@JamesOKeefeIII) has been permanently suspended for violating the Twitter Rules on manipulation and spam.”
“As mentioned in our platform abuse and spam policy, ‘You can’t deceive anyone on Twitter by running fake accounts,’ and ‘You can’t artificially amplify or interrupt conversations by using multiple accounts.’
