Trump threatens to sue CNN, seeks "substantial" payment over damages -letter

WASHINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Lawyers for U.S. President Trump and his re-election campaign have threatened to sue CNN for what it said was falsely advertising itself as a news organization, calling on executives to first discuss an “appropriate resolution” to the matter that would include a “substantial” payment to cover damages.

The letter, dated Oct. 16 and made public on Friday, is the latest threat by Trump to sue a media organization over what he sees as unfair media coverage since launching his 2016 presidential campaign, although no lawsuits have been filed.
