Former President Donald Trump took to his Truth Social account on Thursday to push back on a “fake news” report and issue an ‘apology’ to his wife, former first lady Melania Trump, and Fox News star Sean Hannity.

“There is a Fake Story being promulgated by third-rate reporter Maggie Hagaman of the Failing New York Times, that I am blaming our great former First Lady, Melania, and Sean Hannity, that I was angry with their pushing me to Endorse Dr. Oz,” Trump wrote, referencing Dr. Mehmet Oz, the GOP Senate candidate in Pennsylvania whom he endorsed in a race against Democratic Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, who won the contest.

“First of all Oz is a wonderful guy who really worked hard and was a very good candidate, but he WAS LONG IN THE RACE before I ever Endorsed him, they had NOTHING to do with it, he was not a ‘denier’ (his mistake!), & I was not at all ANGRY. Fake News!” Trump continued.

He then issued his hilarious apology.

“I’d like to apologize to Melania and Sean Hannity for all of the Fake News and fictional stories (made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are!), being dumped on you by reporters and ‘News’ Organizations who know these stories are not true,” the former president said.

“The Fake News Media is ‘Crazed’ and totally out of control. I only wish the public could understand how really corrupt and crooked they are,” he said. “They MAKE UP stories and then push them down your throats.

“Despite having picked so many winners, I have to put up with the Fake News. For me, Fox News was always gone, even in 2015-16 when I began my ‘journey,’ but now they’re really gone,” the former president said before dropping a huge hint about perhaps starting or investing in his own outlet.

“Such an opportunity for another media outlet to make an absolute fortune, and do good for America. Let’s see what happens?” he said.
