Trump Attacks ‘Very Unpatriotic’ Media As The ‘Enemy Of The People’ In Unhinged Tirade





President Trump unleashed a tirade against the media on Sunday, calling journalists “very unpatriotic” for reporting on his administration and adding that the free press is becoming the “Enemy of the People.”

“Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, ‘Enemy of the People.’ Sad!” Trump tweeted Sunday morning.





Trump then called reporters “unpatriotic” for reporting on the inner workings of the government.

The president also singled out The New York Times and The Washington Post for writing “bad stories” about his administration, which he amounted to “[selling] out” the country.

“90% of media coverage of my Administration is negative, despite the tremendously positive results we are achieving, it’s no surprise that confidence in the media is at an all time low!” Trump tweeted.

“I will not allow our great country to be sold out by anti-Trump haters in the dying newspaper industry,” he added. “No matter how much they try to distract and cover it up, our country is making great progress under my leadership and I will never stop fighting for the American people!”




He also boasted that he had higher polls number than President Abraham Lincoln — who served during a time when there was no polling.
