Trump Calls News Media ‘The Real Enemy of the People’ Amid Russia Defense

President Trump escalated his attacks on the news media Thursday, calling them “the real enemy of the people” in a tweet that also defended his controversial press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The president added that he’s looking forward to his next meeting with Putin, which he said will focus on “stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more.”

This marks at least the third time that Trump has labeled the news media “the enemy of the people.” En route to his summit with Putin in Helsinki, Trump tweeted, “Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems……know how to do is resist and obstruct!”

He tweeted a similar message last year after a 75-minute, contentious press conference, and then doubled down on that message at CPAC.

Trump’s latest attack comes after he publicly sided with Putin rather than U.S. intelligence officials over the role Russia played in meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. Trump reversed those remarks two days later in remarks to reporters, but left open the possibility that someone other than Russia meddled in the election – a possibility that U.S. intelligence officials discount.
