Trump: ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, NYTimes are Enemies of the American People
Friday, 17 February 2017

If you thought yesterday's press conference was "ranting and raving", it appears President Trump just turned the anti-'Fake news'-media amplifier up to '11', declaring  CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS , The New York Times (yet not The Washington Post) as "enemies of the American people".

 

 

As a reminder, Trump and chief White House strategist Steve Bannon have both referred to the media as the "opposition party."

"The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign," Mr. Bannon said. "Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign." (He did not name specific reporters or editors.) "That's why you have no power," Mr. Bannon added. "You were humiliated."

"You're the opposition party," Mr. Bannon said. "Not the Democratic Party. You're the opposition party. The media's the opposition party."
