Trump deletes tweet calling for journalists to return 'Noble Prizes' - 2020-04-27
On Sunday, President Donald Trump lashed out at the media on Twitter, calling for journalists to be sued and demanding they return their "Noble Prizes" for their work reporting on Russian interference in the 2016 US elections. He swiftly deleted the tweets.
He later tweeted again and asked whether sarcasm ever worked.
It's the second time this week he'd tried to deflect blame for comments by saying he was being sarcastic. The first time was for saying the US should study whether injections of household disinfectants might treat or cure a coronavirus infection — a dangerous suggestion that horrified public-health experts.
