Trump says he created the word 'fake..

President Trump thinks he came up with the word “fake.”

Trump credited himself with thinking of one of his favorite words in a Saturday interview with former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

“I think one of the greatest of all terms I’ve come up with is ‘fake,’” he told Huckabee.
“I guess other people have used it, perhaps, over the years, but I’ve never noticed it.”

Trump was likely referring to his favored term “fake news,” which he throws at nearly any news organization that reports unflattering stories on his administration.

This isn’t the first time the master of branding has claimed he came up with a common phrase.
According to the NY Daily News,In a May interview with The Economist, Trump said he invented the term “priming the pump,” claiming he “came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good.”

“Priming the pump” has been used since at least the 1930s, according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, and even Trump himself had used it prior to that interview.
