Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says that if he's elected president, American newspapers should watch out.

Trump says at a campaign rally in Fort Worth, Texas, that he wants to make it easier to file lawsuits against newspapers over what they report.

He says that if he's elected, he will ''open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.''

He adds, ''If I become president, oh, do they have problems.''
