As Nation Mourns, Trump Attacks Media As ‘Enemy Of The People’ Responsible For ‘Great Anger’ In US




As the nation continues to mourn the 11 lives silenced by a hate-filled gunman on Saturday morning, President Donald Trump renewed his attacks on the free press, labeling news organizations as “the true Enemy of the People” and blaming “Fake News” for the “great anger in our [c]ountry.”

“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news,” Trump tweeted on Monday morning.

“The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly,” he added. “That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!”



Trump’s attacks come just days after a deadly 72-hour stretch of political violence tore across the country.

“72 hours in America: Three hate-filled crimes. Three hate-filled suspects,” CNN writes: “Wednesday, a white man with a history of violence shot and killed two African-Americans … at a Kentucky Kroger store following a failed attempt to barge into a black church.”

“After mail bombs were being sent to people who’d been criticized by the President, a suspect was arrested … who had railed against Democrats and minorities with hate-filled messages online.” Yesterday morning, “a man shouting anti-Semitic slurs opened fire at a Pittsburgh synagogue, killing 11 people attending Jewish services.”
