Clearly rattled by CNN’s international prominence during his visit to the United Kingdom on Monday morning, President Trump suggested on Twitter that Americans boycott AT&T, CNN’s parent company, to force changes at the network.

“I believe if people stopped using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN,” he said. “When the world watches @CNN, it gets a false picture of USA. Sad!”

Trump’s CNN insults are nothing new, but the suggestion of a boycott of a parent company in order to influence the coverage of news outlet takes his incessant attacks on the media one step further.
