The Hill reports:
President Trump on Sunday dug ratcheted up his attacks on the news media as the “enemy of the people,” saying they “can also cause war.” He accused journalists in an early morning tweet of “purposely” causing “division and distrust” in the country.
Trump has feuded with the media continuously throughout his presidency, labeling negative coverage “fake news.” In recent weeks, however, he has used the phrase “enemy of the people” more often, sparking further conflict between reporters and the administration.
The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE. I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!
