Real News Update, commonly called Trump TV, is an online news program published by Donald Trump's 2020 presidential campaign on Facebook since July 2017. The series reports on Trump's accomplishments as president of the United States. Lara Trump has appeared in several of the videos to highlight what she described as "real news" in opposition to alleged "fake news".
Reception[edit | edit source]
Dylan Byers, writing for CNN, noted a distinction between Lara Trump's videos and that of previous media communications by politicians noting that "Presidents and lawmakers have used websites and social media platforms for years to promote their achievements, but the 'real news' series goes further, seeking to discredit the mainstream media and advertising what purports to be a reliable alternative".
Garet Williams, writing for Vox, said that Lara Trump's video "might be a partial fulfillment" of plans that Donald Trump might have to launch his own broadcasting network, an idea that has been dubbed 'Trump TV'.
