The president made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday, noting that winners would be announced for categories such as “dishonesty” and “bad reporting.”

Trump announced the idea of a “Fake News Trophy” in a tweet in November, in which he named CNN but “not including Fox” News.

His announcement came after an email sent by his campaign last week asking supporters to vote for a “Fake News Trophy” to be awarded.

“Americans are sick and tired of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension,” the email sent to the president’s supporters read, according to The Hill. “That’s why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year.

“There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda,” the email read, linking to a poll to vote on stories as “fake,” “faker” or “fakest” news.

A recent poll from Rasmussen found that 40 percent of respondents thought Fox News should get the “Fake News Trophy,” and 25 percent were in favor of CNN as the winner.

But Trump’s supporters on Twitter were pretty clear on who the real “winners” should be and are looking forward to the “award ceremony.”
