The US President Donald trump on Wednesday pledged to explore the possibility of strengthening its national laws on defamation after the publication caused great repercussions in the country of books, journalist Michael Wolfe’s “Fire and fury: inside the White house trump” (Fire and Fury. Inside the Trump White House).
“We will carefully study the laws of our country on libel in order for the person about whom someone says something false and defamatory, was able to protect in our courts, — said the head of state before the first in this year meeting of his Cabinet. — You can’t lie, speak false things and smile at the same time, when the money comes into your Bank account”.
“Our current libel laws — a fraud and a disgrace and do not represent American values or American justice, so we seriously study them”, — concluded the head of state.
