Trump: People Like Me More When I Attack The Press

Axios reports:

President Trump, in an interview with Axios that will premiere Sunday on HBO, says railing against his enemies in the media helped him win — and that his supporters like him more when he cranks up the “enemy of the people” rhetoric.

In modern American history, no other president argued it’s not his job to calm people in a moment of high tension and unease, especially in the days following deadly domestic terrorism. Axios on HBO: “You are the most powerful man in the world. And if you say that word — ‘enemy,’ ‘enemy,’ ‘enemy’ — think about what enemy means.”

Trump:  “I think I’m doing a service [by attacking the press] when people write stories about me that are so wrong. I know what I do good and what I do bad. I really get it, OK? I really get it better than anybody in the whole world.”
