Trump celebrates suspension of ABC reporter Brian Ross, proposes lawsuits against ABC

ABC News on Saturday suspended investigative reporter Brian Ross for four weeks without pay because of a report in which he made a "serious error" about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Ross reported that President Trump directed Flynn to make contact with the Russian government while he was still a candidate; he later corrected the story to indicate Trump gave the order as president-elect, a significant difference for the investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to sway the vote. Before the correction, the stock market temporarily plunged.

Saturday and Sunday, Trump issued two tweets on the subject, the first praising ABC for the suspension, and the second proposing that anyone who lost money during the stock market dip should sue the network for millions. Read the tweets below. Bonnie Kristian
