Donald Trump has launched a news video series on his
Facebook page, hosted by his son Eric Trump’s wife Lara Trump. “I bet you haven’t learned about all the accomplishments the president had this week because there is so much fake news out there,” the president’s daughter-in-law begins the first video, which was published Sunday. “We wanted to give you a glimpse into his week.”

The video continues to discuss events such as Trump donating his second quarter salary to the Department of Education–which was reported on
CNN, The Washington Post, and the New York Times. Trump says that the unemployment rate is at its lowest point since 2001, which was also reported by CNN back in June. In the nearly two-and-a-half minute long video, Trump also talks about the arrival of Foxconn in Wisconsin, another story that was widely reported.
