Donald Trump once enjoyed a fairly friendly relationship with the mainstream media. Then he ran for president. As a Republican. On an “America First” platform. The relationship soured quickly. As bad as Candidate Trump’s relationship with media was, President-elect Trump’s relationship with media is worse. It appears that some media organizations are willing to risk everything in an effort to bring him down.

"It now turns out that the phony allegations against me were put together by my political opponents and a failed spy afraid of being sued," Trump tweeted Friday. "Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans — FAKE NEWS!"

Is the intelligence community responsible for leaking the spurious “dossier” about Trump? To shed light on this question, Trump said he had a “meeting with intelligence” that he told no one about — “and immediately the word got out that I had a meeting.”

Do the U.S. intelligence community's actions rise to the level of “something that Nazi Germany would have done,” as Trump charges? And do those actions include not only fake intel against Trump but also giving him “fake briefings"?

In a statement posted on the White House website on January 12, President Obama announced the ending of the “wet-foot/dry foot” policy, which allowed Cuban refugees who set foot on U.S. soil to be granted asylum and legal residency.
