Trump, who has frequently slammed the media since before he took office, originally floated the idea of opening a "fake news trophy" contest in November.

"We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me)," Trump said then. "They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!"

In an email solicitation last month, the Trump-Pence Make America Great Again Committee asked donors to take a poll to name the worst "fake news story" of 2017.
