Donald Trump and his chief spokesman launched an unprecedented assault on the media Saturday on the US president’s first full day in office, accusing reporters of downplaying the turnout at his inauguration. Trump, visiting the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in nearby Langley, Virginia, insisted against all evidence that he drew 1.5 million people to his Friday swearing-in ceremony. “I made a speech. I looked out, the field was, it looked like a million, million and a half people,” he told CIA staff.
