President Donald Trump declared that "about 30 percent" of journalists are good people. Breaking from his prepared remarks at the FBI's National Academy graduation ceremony, President Trump joked that many Americans were watching at home through the cameras of the "fake news" media. "As I look out on the audience today I see many young, bright faces," President Trump said. "To them and to many other young Americans watching at home, of which there are many — you see the fake news back there," he added, pointing to the line of news cameras. The line drew surprised laughs from the crowd, prompting President Trump to repeat "fake news" again over the laughter. President Trump turned serious afterward, remarking that some of the assembled journalists were "fine people." "No, actually, some of them are fine people," he added. "About, let's see who's back there? Yeah, about 30 percent."
