An MSNBC host was forced to apologize after airing news that Trump had loans co-signed by Russian oligarchs.
The report was unverified and fake.
The Trump team slammed the report and wrote a letter to MSNBC complaining about defamation, which yielded fast results.
O’Donnell tweeted “Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air. I will address the issue on my show tonight,”
The letter sent by Trump to MSNBC, obtained by Fox, read, “Demand is hereby made that Mr. O’Donnell and NBCU immediately and prominently retract, correct and apologize for the aforementioned false and defamatory statements.”
