Donald Trump slams Washington Post for reporting on US-Syria policy, alleges paper fabricated facts

Washington: President Donald Trump has assailed The Washington Post in connection with a story about termination of United States efforts to aid rebels fighting to oust Syria's President Bashar Assad.

In a post on his Twitter account Monday, Trump said, "The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad."

United States officials told the newspaper in a story published 19 July that ending the secret program was related to Trump's concerns about re-establishing a working relationship with Russia.

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders declined at the time to discuss cessation of the program, telling reporters she didn't know if it had come up in discussions that Trump had with Russian president Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
