President Trump calls media ‘the enemy of the people’

President Trump on Sunday again launched a blistering Twitter attack on the media, a day before his highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Heading to Helsinki, Finland – looking forward to meeting with President Putin tomorrow,” Trump tweeted. “Unfortunately, no matter how well I do at the Summit, if I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russia over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasn’t good enough – that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!”

“Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems know how to do is resist and obstruct!” Trump added. “This is why there is such hatred and dissension in our country – but at some point, it will heal!”

Trump also slammed the media over its reporting on North Korea.

“There hasn’t been a missile or rocket fired in 9 months in North Korea, there have been no nuclear tests and we got back our hostages. Who knows how it will all turn out in the end, but why isn’t the Fake News talking about these wonderful facts? Because it is FAKE NEWS!” Trump tweeted.
