Trump moves back his 'Fake News Awards,' citing high interest

US President Donald Trump speaks to the media after the Congressional Republican Leadership retreat at Camp David US on Saturday

In a tweet posted late Sunday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he plans to postpone his fake awards show for fake news to Wednesday, January 17, from Monday, January 8 - just in case you thought things couldn't get any sillier.

"The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!"

Trump says he'll give out the awards on January 17, but the White House hasn't said much about them.

"CNN "MISTAKENLY" reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks, it wrote". Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media.

Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah bought a full-page ad in The New York Times, resembling the style of an Academy Awards "For Your Consideration" campaign.

Death toll in terrorist attack in Kabul rises to 20 people
Several days ago a suicide bomber killed more than 40 people at a Shi'ite cultural centre in the capital. President Ashraf Ghani late on January 4 called the attack "inhumane" and against the tenets of Islam.

Well, Trump has now announced a schedule change. "This is a real dilemma for the president because, on one hand, he loves awards and trophies".

Cheri Angel responded: "I can hardly wait. Stay tuned!" the president tweeted.

After sharing his excitement at the prospect of winning an award, the host of The Late Show revealed that he had purchased a "billboard in New York's City Times Square in hopes of increasing his chances of being honored in categories such as "Least Bretibarty", "The Eric Trump Memorial Award for Disappointment" and "Smallest Button".

In November, he tweeted about a competition among news networks for the "Fake News Trophy", excluding Fox News.

Other parts of the book described how White House staff and the President's own family are forced to treat Mr Trump like a "child", that he often repeats himself and that the people around him frequently question his suitability for the role.
