Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) suggested to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that Congress should pass a resolution condemning President Trump’s attacks on the media.
President Trump has received backlash from Democratic lawmakers and members of media for calling the media “fake news” in reaction to questionable reporting tactics and unfavorable stories.
“We should condemn it. We should maybe pass a resolution condemning the president for saying things like that,” Nadler told Camerota, regarding Trump’s attacks on the media. “The press is not the enemy of the people. The two institutions that we depend on, to maintain a democratic form of government, to maintain protection against tyranny from the executive or anyone else, are a free press and the independent judiciary, and he’s attacking both of them.”
Nadler went on to tell Camerota that the only people he knows that use the phrase “enemy of the people” referring to the press were Stalin and leaders in the Soviet bloc.
