President Donald Trump has fulfilled his threat to sue more media outlets for defamation. His target this time: The Washington Post.

Trump's campaign sued The New York Times for libel last week over a 2019 opinion piece written by Max Frankel, a former executive editor of the newspaper. Frankel suggested in his essay that Trump's campaign had engaged in a "quid pro quo" with Russia before the 2016 presidential election.

The president called Frankel's remarks "totally wrong" during a press briefing last Wednesday.

"They did a bad thing," Trump told reporters, referring to the Times. "There will be more coming."
