Donald Trump Calls Press 'Enemy Of The American People' And Twitter Responds
President Donald Trump has a vendetta against any news organization that reports negatively on him.
As you probably already know, President Donald Trump has a vendetta against any news organization that reports negatively on him, whether or not the information they report is accurate.
In a press conference yesterday, Donald Trump even called Russia 'fake news' following the resignation of national-security adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn had communicated with Russian officials during the transitional period before Trump had been sworn in, and lied to Vice President Mike Pence about the extent of the talks.
Trump then went on to incorrectly claim that he had won the electoral college in the biggest landslide since Ronald Reagan. In reality, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama all won by far greater margins.
So it shouldn't come as surprise that this evening, Trump tweeted not once, but twice, that the "fake news media" is the "enemy of the American people."
In the first tweet, which Trump deleted minutes after publishing, he specifically called out the New York Times, CNN, and NBC.
In a second tweet, Trump made some changes.
Trump added CBS and ABC to the list, removed the incorrect spacing from his original tweet, incorrectly capitalized "People," and removed "SICK" from the end of his tweet.
As you can imagine, Twitter users aren't responding well to the tweet.
Another user asked why Donald Trump seems to be the only politician who wants to declare war on the media.
Others were clear that they expected the media to hold Trump accountable.
While others taunted the President over low approval ratings.
Others believe that the specific organizations are being targeted because they're not "being nice" to Trump.
This is all on the same day that the Associated Press revealed that the Trump administration considered a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants.
