President Trump has once again taken aim at the media, this time, calling the New York Times, the "enemy of the people."
"The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"
On Tuesday, the NY Times published an article titled, 'Intimidation, Pressure and Humiliation: Inside Trump’s Two-Year War on the Investigations Encircling Him."
The article is a response to allegations that then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker late last year to put U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman in charge of the investigation in New York's Southern District into Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen. It also focused on Trump's war on inquiry's and investigations into his murky dealings.
"Mr. Trump’s public war on the inquiry has gone on long enough that it is no longer shocking. Mr. Trump rages almost daily to his 58 million Twitter followers that Mr. Mueller is on a “witch hunt” and has adopted the language of Mafia bosses by calling those who cooperate with the special counsel “rats.” His lawyer talks openly about a strategy to smear and discredit the special counsel investigation. The president’s allies in Congress and the conservative news media warn of an insidious plot inside the Justice Department and the F.B.I. to subvert a democratically elected president, the article reads.
Trump has not denied anything in particular, but he continues his mission to discredit every unflattering article about him and pit his extremist, far-right supports against the free media.
"The Press has never been more dishonest than it is today. Stories are written that have absolutely no basis in fact. The writers don’t even call asking for verification. They are totally out of control. Sadly, I kept many of them in business. In six years, they all go BUST!" he also tweeted on Wednesday morning.
