Donald Trump's "official" super PAC has spent more than $25 million since last year to get the president re-elected. Now it's trying a new tactic: the group, America First Action, has launched a news website.

The site is called the American Herald, and it describes itself as "a conservative news platform designed to bring you all the news the liberal media doesn't want you to know. We commit to cover national issues that impact all Americans, not just what fits the left's political agenda."

The American Herald's formation comes during an election cycle in which Trump's political machine has sought to construct its own media infrastructure to combat and circumvent what it sees as endemic hostility from the political press. "Stop being told what to think," the American Herald's tagline declares.
