President Donald Trump rescinded Rep. John Ratcliffe’s (R-TX) nomination as director of national intelligence due to the treatment Ratcliffe has received from the mainstream media.

Ratcliffe also responded on Twitter:

The mainstream media has taken a tough stance with most of Trump’s nominations. I would not have a problem with this if they took the same approach with President Barack Obama’s nominations.

The media went right to work once Trump nominated Ratcliffe. The Washington Post discovered an error on Ratcliffe’s congressional website. He claimed, “as a U.S. Attorney, I arrested over 300 illegal immigrants in a single day.” The data showed authorities only arrested 45 undocumented workers on that day in 2008.
