Trump: Media Is ‘Enemy of the American People’


President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon tweeted, then deleted an outwardly hostile message calling various media outlets the people’s real enemy, the Daily Beast reports. “The FAKE NEWS media,” he wrote, citing The New York Times, CNN, and NBC News, among others, “is not my enemy. It is the enemy of the American people. SICK!”

The message was deleted shortly after its posting, but numerous users screengrabbed the tweet for posterity. Several minutes later, the president re-posted the message, with slight tweakings: he added CBS and ABC to the roster of “fake news” outlets, and removed the “SICK!” from the back end. The fiery message branding the media the “enemy of the American people” came one day after a 75-minute press conference in which the president repeatedly fought with members of the media—calling outlets “fake news.”
