Trump: ‘Our Country’s Biggest Enemy Is The Fake News’ Media, ‘Especially NBC And CNN’


Trump: ‘Our Country’s Biggest Enemy Is The Fake News’ Media, ‘Especially NBC And CNN’

President Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to declare the “Fake News” media “our country’s biggest enemy,” especially “NBC and CNN” for their coverage of the North Korea summit.

“So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN,” Trump tweeted.

“They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have “begged” for this deal-looked like war would break out. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!”

The Hill added:

CNN and NBC have long been Trump targets for attacks on the media along with The New York Times and The Washington Post. His tweet on Tuesday echoed a comment made last year, in which he called the news media “the enemy of the American people.”

The agreement signed on Tuesday reaffirmed Pyongyang’s commitment to denuclearization while committing the U.S. to unspecified security guarantees for North Korea. Exactly what those security guarantees are remains murky, but Trump announced that he would suspend joint military exercises with South Korea.

Pyongyang has long claimed that those military drills are essentially rehearsals for an invasion of the North.

The document signed on Tuesday gives virtually no details beyond a stated commitment to denuclearize, a promise North Korea has made – and broken – many times in the past.
