Is Trump Right When He Says the Press is ‘the ENEMY of the American People’?

Do you agree? Media can be very influential and it seems like most of the media now days leans to the Left. They don’t report the whole truth, or they bend it slightly, using words like ‘protest’ instead of ‘riot’. Most people should see through them, you would think, but there are some who fall right into the hands of the MSM.

The White House chief of staff says that Americans should take ‘seriously’ President Donald Trump’s recent claim that the press ‘is the enemy of the American people.’

‘I think you should take it seriously,’ Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, said in a combative interview with CBS taped on Saturday, adding that ‘the American people suffer’ because of the news media.

Priebus was referring to a Friday tweet from the President slamming the ‘Big Three’ TV networks, plus the New York Times and CNN, as ‘fake news.’

‘The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!’

Trump had previously called the press ‘the opposition party.’

His latest verbal attacks on the free press, which he amplified at a campaign rally in Florida on Saturday, followed a week of difficult news for his administration.

First, the revelation that National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had lied about his conversations with the Russian ambassador prompted Flynn’s resignation.

Then Trump’s nominee for labor secretary, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his name from consideration after reporters found a tape of his ex-wife sharing domestic abuse allegations with Oprah Winfrey in 1990.
