Trump says he'll take a 'strong look' at libel laws in response to book

President Trump said Wednesday he will take a “strong look” at the nation’s libel laws following the publication of Michael Wolff’s book that paints a chaotic and dysfunctional picture of his presidency.

Speaking from a prepared statement before a Cabinet meeting, Trump blasted the current laws as “a sham and a disgrace.”

“Our current libel laws are a sham and a disgrace and do not represent American values and American fairness,” he told reporters. “We're going to take a very, very strong look at that.”

He is so thin skinned.  Every president that i can remember had a unflattering book written about them.

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, I will go to his funeral very, very soon.

It's hilarious in that he himself would run afoul more than any predatory journalists.  His pioneering work on birtherism alone would have put him in legal jeopardy.

Could Obama sue Trump for the birtherism nonsense?

One can sue another for any reason.

The other thread on this, gents and ladies, take a look at my links about UK libel laws.



You really really don’t want to go down that path.

In related news, the libel laws will soon be suing Trump for sexual harassment.

Perhaps he should simply disprove (or have his campaign disprove) the claims.  Or simply deny them and move on with his life.

Letting government decide what people can say is seriously wrong-headed.  Of course, the same is true for letting government decide just about everything.  Perhaps those oppose government control here, should take a "strong look" at the control they cheer elsewhere.

Government enacts law (usuall, not so much yours right now) but courts interpret it.


Presumably some crass, badly written Mr. Trump law about libel would struggle to make it, and, if it did, would be (mostly) sensibly dealt with by your courts?
