Trump: 80% Of The Press Is The Enemy Of The People

The other 20% is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump on Wednesday sought to clarify how much of the press he sees as “the enemy of the people.” He put it at about 80 percent. The president has repeatedly derided the media with the term but also allowed that he believes some reporters do their jobs to his satisfaction.

During an interview at the White House on Wednesday with Fox News — one outlet Trump frequently praises — he was asked: “Is the press the enemy of the people?”

“No, not at all. But the fake news is,” Trump told Ainsley Earhardt of “Fox & Friends.” “And the fake news is comprised of — it’s a lot. It’s a big chunk, okay? Somebody said, ‘What’s the chunk?’ I said, ‘80 percent.’ It’s a lot. It’s a lot. If I do something well, it’s not reported. Other than in the 20 percent.”

The full Fox interview airs tomorrow.
