I look forward to the coming debate and I hope my opponent will be at least somewhat interested in having a real debate. The Proposition will be attempting to prove that President Trump does not, in fact, understand the issue of fake news and he is having a negative impact on a fundamental part of the United States. The Negation will be attempting to prove that President Trump does, in fact, understand fake news and that he is not having a negative impact on the United States. The first round will be open to questions and concerns regarding the debate, be it definitions or formatting. Best of luck.

A crap, sorry about forfeiting that round. I completely forgot about this debate (If we can even still call this a debate) none the less the mistake is on me. I was going to argue that Trump simply calls news fake when he disagrees with it, and that doesn't necessarily mean the reporting is actually false. I was going to point to some reports and studies done on the accuracy of news reporting and so on and so forth. Feel free to argue against that if you would like in the next round, but again I did forfeit the round and you can choose to just extend your arguments, it's up to you.
