Donald Trump is notoriously hard on CNN for their highly-biased coverage of his every move.
However, in a shocking reversal from his usual attacks on the liberal network, Trump praised CNN for covering most of the Republican National Convention, saying it’s “good for the country.”
“Very appreciative that @CNN covered the vast majority of the Republican Convention last night. That was really good for CNN, while at the same time being good for our Country,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Thank you!”
Trump’s tone in this tweet is a marked departure from just a day earlier when he ripped the network for cutting away from a roll call vote that confirms his official renomination for president.
President Trump’s contentious relationship with CNN has made headlines throughout his presidency. His interactions with CNN’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, have been especially firey over the years, culminating in the White House even revoking Acosta’s press pass briefly in 2018.
President Trump frequently attacks CNN as “unwatchable,” singling out network anchors such as Chris Cuomo and Jake Tapper for hosting “unwatchable” shows with “really bad ratings.”
