By Biodun Busari

Former President of the United States Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against the Cable News Network (CNN) Inc for defamation on Monday.

He was also seeking $475 million in retributive damages, claiming that the media giant had carried out a “campaign of libel and slander” against him.

Reuters said Trump claims in his lawsuit that was filed in US District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that CNN had used its substantial influence as a leading news organisation to defeat him politically.
