“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” Trump tweeted.
US President Donald Trump has stepped up his attack on media. He called newspapers and channels that have been critical of his presidency as “enemy of the American people.”
His scathing attack on the media came a day after he asserted that his administration is “running like a fine-tuned machine” and there is “no chaos” inside the White House as being reported by the “dishonest” media.
Trump’s latest tweet criticising the media went viral as within a few hours it was retweeted more than 28,000 times, forwarded 53,000 times and liked by 85,000 people.
In reference to the news conference, Trump in another tweet said, “Thank you for all of the nice statements on the Press Conference yesterday. Rush Limbaugh said one of greatest ever. Fake media not happy!”
Meanwhile, Fox News in an opinion poll said voters, albeit by a slim margin of 45 to 42 per cent, find the White House more truthful than the media. (input: PTI)
