    Comey/Trump conversations:

    Loyalty Oath Requested by Trump:

    “I didn’t ask that question,” Trump said ― though he argued that even if he had, it wouldn’t have been “inappropriate.” “I don’t think it would be a bad question to ask,” said Trump. “It depends on how you define loyalty.”

    Comey stated under oath: "A few moments later, the President said, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed. We simply looked at each other in silence. The conversation then moved on, but he returned to the subject near the end of our dinner."

    Trump asked Comey to dinner:

    “I had dinner with him,” Trump said. “He wanted to have dinner because he wanted to stay on.” “Dinner was arranged,” he added. “I think he asked for the dinner. And he wanted to stay on as the FBI head, and I said, ‘I’ll consider it. We’ll see what happens.’”

    Comey stated under oath: "Only seven days after Donald J. Trump was sworn in as president, James B. Comey has told associates, the F.B.I. director was summoned to the White House for a one-on-one dinner with the new commander in chief. The President and I had dinner on Friday, January 27 at 6:30 pm in the Green Room at the White House. He had called me at lunchtime that day and invited me to dinner that night, saying he was going to invite my whole family, but decided to have just me this time, with the whole family coming the next time. It was unclear from the conversation who else would be at the dinner, although I assumed there would be others. It turned out to be just the two of us, seated at a small oval table in the center of the Green Room."

    Trump asked Comey to end the Michael Flynn investigation.

    The Times reported on May 16 that Trump asked Comey to end the FBI investigation into Michael Flynn, based on parts of a memo “one of Mr. Comey’s associates” read to reporters. White House claimed the report’s version of events was “not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey. While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn. The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations.”

    Comey stated under oath: "The President then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn, saying, “He is a good guy and has been through a lot.” He repeated that Flynn hadn’t done anything wrong on his calls with the Russians, but had misled the Vice President. He then said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”"

    Trumps 2/6/17 Tweet: "Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting."

    Donald Trump says all negative polls about him are fake news. At the time, his disapproval rate was 50 to 53%. It has since dropped even lower.

    “Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel,” Trump said in a two-part tweet. “Nevertheless, Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!”

    The reporting he is talking about: He refused to shake her hand during a photo op.

    And later, during a joint news conference, Trump pushed back against the notion in Europe that his "America First" agenda means he's an isolationist, calling such a suggestion "another example of, as you say, fake news."

    Oops. I thought fake news that turned out to be fake. I'm a little punchy from lack of sleep. As you were.

    May 28, 2017, Tweet from Trump, "Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names...."

    May 28, 2017, Tweet from Trump, "It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media."

    Reason for the Tweet: Reporting that day was about Kushner trying to set up a back-channel communications network with the Kremlin and that he had two previously undisclosed conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    January 17, 2017, Tweet from Trump, “Totally biased @NBCNews went out of its way to say that the big announcement from Ford, G.M., Lockheed & others that jobs are coming back to the U.S., but had nothing to do with TRUMP, is more FAKE NEWS.”

    Reason for the Tweet: NBC News was reporting that companies, either eager to get on Trump’s good side or nervous that they might become the subject of his next Twitter outburst, have repackaged old plans as announcements of new jobs.

    February 6, 2017, NYT reports about the White House administration and Trump watching the TV/news in his bathrobe.

    Spicer said of the story: ''That is literally the epitome of fake news.' 'Start at the top. I don't think the president owns a bathrobe,' Spicer said. 'He definitely doesn't wear one.'

    January 15, 2017, Tweet from Trump, "Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand." Oh really, couldn't do...much worse - just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?"

    Brennan said on Sunday that Trump needs to be disciplined about what he says publicly and censured him for comparing the actions of US intelligence agencies to those of Nazis.

    February 16, 2017 - On his travel ban, Trump disagreed with reports that his travel ban rollout was anything less than perfect. "We had a very smooth roll out," Trump said, despite the ban being blocked in what he termed a "bad court." "The rollout was perfect," the president said.

    July 16, 2017, Tweet from Trump, "With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country,”

    Reason for Tweet: News that his campaign paid $50,000 in late June to the law firm later revealed to be representing Donald Trump Jr in the matter of a meeting during 2016 with a Russian lawyer to seek damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

    December 10, 2016, Tweet from Trump, "Reports by @CNN that I will be working on The Apprentice during my Presidency, even part time, are rediculous (sp.) & untrue - FAKE NEWS!"

    Reason for the tweet: Variety reported Thursday that MGM, the production studio behind the show, said Trump will remain an executive producer on the show that made him famous for a per-episode salary in the low five figures.

    July 18, 2017, tweet by trump, "Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is "sick." All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew! The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!"

    Reason for the Tweet: The press released the news that there was an undisclosed 45-minute one-on-one conversation between Putin and Trump after a G20 dinner.
